Project

Longer Jacket

What are you most proud of? No pins, ease of stitching, no grading and cutting seams down, great instruction booklet with the pattern. Also I like the fabric having the print effect. Topstitching eye has become better too. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just follow Janet's instructions, and learn how to sew better and enjoy it.
