I originally chose this pattern for the cowl neck version of the jacket, but grew to want the standing collar version instead. The fabric is so soft but still has enough body for a jacket. Button are pending as the originals I bought don’t quite make the grade.
Successes: I made my own shoulder pads.
Lessons Learned: I need to not be afraid to use heavy stabilizer. I’ll have to spend extra time pressing the jacket to make up for this.
