Thanks guys. i used sugar and cream as a kind of trial. It's  faded a lot though.

I have a question on modifications...
I'm making mine with sugar and cream in well...cream. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to attach a hood instead of a collar and if you think I hood will weigh down the jacket/distract from the "look" of the jacket

OK! I finally had time to get these pics! sorry if they arn't great, it's hard taking pics of yourself without a mirror!
I used sugar'n'cream in a bright yellow, I was suprised how fast this worked up, I haven't worn it much cause it's been cold, but it would be a great spring jacket!

that lady in the pattern photo makes the jacket look a bit momish. like she's ready to jump in the minivan and pick up the kids from soccer practice, which put me off this jacket. but you make it look very chic and young. perhaps it's the color choice. anyway, good job!

I'm having trouble with shaping the right front. It seems that one side should be straight while the other curves inwards with a semi-circle type look...however, I don't see how that is achieved through repeating the raglan sleeve shaping that was used to do that back (Seems more like a triangle w/ the tip cut off for the back).
