Thanks for the warnings. It almost makes me want to try it to see if it;s all that tough, but that;s really not the way you meant the warnings, I think.

Congratulations on tackling all those layers of laminated fabric and the quilted lining -- wow! Great jacket!

Oh my, I can't believe you had to un-quilt & re-quilt some of the lining. Good for you; I think it would have ended up a UFO in my sewing room. Needles really can make a difference when sewing. Great jacket, it came out great.

Your fiance is one lucky fella - the jacket turned out well, and you did great work. I think it's the projects you put the most work into that usually turn out to be your "pride and joy". Nice job!

I like the plaid waterproof fabric. I always wonder about the Green Pepper patterns. Thanks for the reveiw. You did get a nice garment as a result of your frustrations.

I think it looks great! You really tackled some tough fabric and from the tone of your review/and the picture - You were triumphant!

Great job! Waterproof-breathable fabrics are one of the most difficult to sew.
