I know that I have already praised this project, but wow! and second, did you use cordinating cording (try saying that three times fast Cheesy) for the lapel edge and pocket edges? Or how did you get it to look like that??? Cheesy Thanks in advance!

This jacket is great.  I love the plaid lining. 

I'm not brave enough to start cutting my fabric without a pattern so kudos on a job well done!

sooo.....i sewed it inside out and the put it right-side out. I didn't do cord stuff or top-stitching. I don't really know what you mean, but i didn't do anything too fancy...

Thanks again guys...
i love this site! Ha.

di, couldn't you look at thrift stores for a pattern that you could use the sleeve out of the pattern?  It wouldn't really matter as long as the sleeve was long enough....but I have never done that before.  I say thrift store because you could probably find something very cheap....
