What are you most proud of? I thought the whole project turned out well. With jeans and my diamond earrings - I can go anywhere! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I collected fabrics and the bias tape for several weeks before starting. I had a clear image in my head of what I wanted the jacket to look like. The final jacket goes well beyond the original pattern pieces - the appliqu was "basted" in place with a touch of 3M spray adhesive, then I pinned the bias tape to the edges and top stitched carefully one needle-width from the edge. What you can't see in the photo is that I top stitched the applique 1/4" from the bias tape in all the spaces created by the tape. I also did several practice samples of the welt pockets and bound buttonholes before doing them on the jacket itself.
