Flight Jacket II ( A winter jacket)

What was your source for this sewing project? Other What are you most proud of? The jacket turned out well and it fits! What more can a person ask? What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is "Flight Jacket Two" - a pattern from SAF-T-POCKETS Patterns - Patterns with Pockets. The jacket has 11 pockets which adds time to the construction but is well worth the effort. The Insul-Bright adds quite a bit of bulk to the seams - so I cut off the seam allowances and butt the pieces together eliminating all seam bulk. That worked well!

jmn111 made Flight Jacket II ( A winter jacket) with:
