What are you most proud of? I cut out and interfaced the pattern pieces and made the jacket the next day. Then I ruined the "express" nature of the jacket by hand stitching the button holes and by stitching in a lining by hand :). I used a few pins on the sleeves and cuffs but it was alot quicker not pinning every seam. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an easy jacket to make following Janets excellent course. Gutterman upholstery thread worked well for topstitching but required a much higher tension than ordinary thread.
