Sapa Hemp

What are you most proud of? The fit: 3" out of the shoulders, 1 1/2" off the front, near armscye, shortened almost 3", and I think the style suits me now. I'm proud of the pressing job too. And I did sew the entire jacket without pins, yeah! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to fit the jacket first as it is a very large fitting style. Then, be patient with yourself, watch Janet more than once, and add hand written notes and her tips to your booklet of instructions for later reference.
