That pattern looks impossibly difficult to sew and unquestionably impossible to sew in that fabric!!! But look at your fabulous result! Wow!

I love the result and thank you for the tips regarding the cuffs, that surely elminates the bulk inside. Never thought of it and I can do that with other similar parts too! Nice idea about the zipper makes it really hip!

OMG I love it. This is the jacket of my dreams. I thought it was leather. It's hard to believe it's denim. Can I feel it from Kentucky?? lol
