The Jacket

I did it…finished my jacket without losing my hair completely.  I used a Mccalls 6041 pattern. I used a ready made pattern mostly because i wanted the sewing instructions in order to finish it properly.  There are a few issues with the jacket actually. I ended up with the lining much shorter than the body so it didnt cover the inside fully…(as in, bottom seams and the front seam on one side.) I used cotton silk lining in chocolate brown..I also made pockets, with a fringe trim. I stitched velvet black tape on the sleeves…

Apart from a few minor issues, guess it came out ok…i need to add a frog clasp at the front and may be cut the sleeves shorter…ill update once i do those..
