Q&A with SnugsUK

SnugsUK asked:
It was a sort of cord. I picked it up at www.abakhan.co.uk where they sell lots of off cuts by weight. It was under a section of suede materials but that's all it said. I didn't buy it specifically for this jacket I just used it to try out because I had never made a jacket before. It wasn't too bad to sew just a bit bulky at times. The hardest bit was the topstitching, because it was hard to get the material to feed through smoothly. I got there in the end. Thank you for your kind feedback. Have you made this jacket?
SnugsUK answered:
Sorry I can see your jacket now. It's great. You must be pleased as I am to have made and completed it. I found the videos so helpful. Usually when I try to follow a pattern I am unsure of the meaning but with Janet showing each step it was so much easier. Will you be making more things soon?
