I am very interested in registering for one of Angela Wolf's jacket classes, however I am not sure which one to take.
I am just getting back into sewing after more that 30 years. Right now I am doing basic things like shower curtains, scarves, and pull on lounge pants. I am only interested in jacket construction right now in the garment field and really want help with taking a pattern from start to finish. I love the look of the couture jacket lesson but afraid that may be too advanced. In fact I dont have to line my jacket. Yet I am not excited about the unlined jacket pattern. Any recommendations on which class would be best?

Take Angela's " Create a Jacket Muslin". Fit is probably the biggest hurdle you're going to face...unless your body hasn't changed in 30 years. I think you can choose any pattern you want. You can post photos on the class sew along thread and Angela will walk you through the fitting process. Once you get a muslin that works, you have a pattern that works and you are on your way. That's what I would do if I were you.
My 2 cents. HTH
