You did a beautiful job. Trust me, all that handwork will pay off, because you'll have that jacket forever, and it will look as good in 10 years as it does today. I took a similar course a lifetime ago, and still have the jacket I made. I used to call it my "drinking jacket" because it could spend an evening crumpled up in a wad at the pub, but a quick shake, and it looked perfect.

WOW Everybody  Grin
Thank you so much for your kind words and praise. It's great to be able to share with fellow artisans who understand what it takes and why we love doing it! It makes me love my jacket even more.
Cheers!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Another kick-@ss project!  I can't believe I missed seeing your post until now.  Grrrrrr.  I'm enthralled by the details and the time and attention to detail, but my brain goes a bit squishy when I think about doing it myself.  I'm so glad that there are people like you in the world who do it!

Looks great!
I too have taken an Advanced Garment : TAiloring class..
How about that pad stiching!!!! Took me hours to do the lapesl and the collar.....but it sure does create nice structure....
it's amazing how a jacket that is 75 percent hand sewn can be so durable!

Wow, that's pretty awesome!
I know how much work such a jacket is, I made one for my final exam.
