Floral Print Silk Jacket

What are you most proud of? At last I was able to attach the collar, waistband and cuff with fully enclosed seams using the burrito method. I can't recall which of the several dozen configurations I used but at least I didn't have a straight jacket when I was finished. And I had no ripping with the rib knit! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Craftsy classes, of course. I've only been sewing for six months, and other than learning by making lots of errors, I've gained the most from Craftsy. And you tube for welt pockets.
