Thanks for the review! I am planning on making this jacket for fall and may start sooner after seeing yours. You did an amazing job. As for your question on interfacing I just buy mine from Joann. I never use iron on though I have never liked the way it ends up looking or feeling. Hope that helps. Thanks again!!

You should be proud, your jacket looks great and great on you. The collar looks like a different fabric or like it was quilted--maybe it's just they way the light is shining on it? Anyway, it looks lovely.

The jacket looks fantastic, especially for your first one. You should be very proud of yourself!!! Sandra Betzina has a wonderful illustrated explanation on bagging a lining in her Power Sewing book. She covers the topic on sleeves well. I highly recommend the book.

Terrific looking jacket on you. Do the happy dance to celebrate your success. I agree with the advice to test several interfacings although I mostly use fusi Knit, silk organza and a knit interfacing I get from Fabric Mart Fabrics on line. Bravo, it took me years to get the courage to tackle a jacket.

You did an excellent job. Your jacket looks good and is flattering. The Sewing Place offers numerous brands of interfacing and they did have on their site some helpful information about the interfacing and what type fabric is does well on. NAYYY! with them just I use them for some of my interfacing purchases.

Well you should be proud! Lots of work to a jacket, and it looks great on you. I agree with Kay Y having several varieties of interfacing on hand to test and compare.

Nice work! I recommend buying some different kinds of interfacing and having them on hand for your jacket projects. I usually test fuse a couple of 3-4" squares on scraps of fabric before making a decision which one or which combination to use. I often use a firmer interfacing on the jacket front and lighter one on facings, upper collar, hems, etc. I don't serge seam allowances in a lined jacket unless the fabric frays a lot.
