Any idea why a photo appears in the photo gallery but not with your review? I wanted to take a closer look at your jacket, but am frustrated in that wish. It certainly looks interesting.

Sorry that the picture thing didn't work out very well. Apparently you can't just upload an image - probably would take up way too much bandwidth. I guess unless the picture resides somewhere on the web, the best you can do is see a thumbnail in the Photo Gallery. If anyone is really interested, I can email you one.

Update: finished the leather version, made the seam allowances about 1/4" narrower, so that it had a bit more ease. Worked brilliantly, although the collar gave me grief, since I had to sew through 4 layers of lambskin. Other than skipped stitches on the collar, the finished result was beautiful. I used Wonder Tape to hold the pieces together to sew them (since you can't pin leather), and then peeled it off afterward. Some day I'll figure out how to post images!!
