Hi Lotta55lotta.

To answer your question - yes I think my fabric is the type that holds well. It's not really "sturdy", but it hardly gets any creases, and it drapes nicely.
Also keep in mind that for the collar part the fabric is folded in two.

As for the lining - I initially wanted to line it but gave up bc. I made a mistake and couldn't be bothered anymore at the time.
Anyway, the way I started it was by cutting a piece of lining following the back piece pattern, with shorter sleeves. In my enthusiasm I cut out the dart at the back, when I should have just made it into a tuck...  Undecided
I don't really have experience with lining, so I would actually be interested to hear what others have to say!

Good luck with your jacket!

**Edited to add a big thank you to everyone for all the nice comments! (sorry for the delay.. Smiley)

Well, here I am finally posting my first pics!
I made the jacket last September but only took pics today.
(Sorry about the pic of the backside, with the messed collar..!)

It's made in a bulky wool blend fabric, and as I couldn't find a big snap I bought this clutch which happened to suit perfectly.
Because the fabric wasn't stretchy at all, I made two small pleats on each sleeve when sewing.
Thanks everyone for the inspiration!

Hat looks great!
I think it would make a very nice Xmas tree also in soft cushion version (stuffed)!

Yes your dress looks soooo good!!
The thing that surprises me most is the colour/texture combination.
The brown satin and the red print fabric are two things I would never see together, but you matched them top-designer style!!
Congratulations, and thanks for the inspiration.

Great use of colour hues and textures! It looks both classy and hip, I love the overall match (clothes, shoes, hairstyle, makeup).
You have STYLE!
