Another nice version of this coat. Definitely 'spring'.

I'm sorry to hear that you had trouble with the pockets. I have posted a picture of the inside of a stretch denim jacket I am making (with the pockets tacked to the facing).
Here is the URL:

The last two steps in the instructions have been inverted. Sorry about that. The buttons and buttonholes should be the very last step (they are sewn through the pockets). I will modify the pdf and add the link to the picture to help other customers with that step. I hope this information solves your pocket problem :)

Great looking jacket. Glad to here I wasn't the only one who had trouble with those pockets.

Nice coat and my favourite colour too. :) Thanks for the detailed info on the pockets as I have plans to sew this pattern.

Thanks, I'm very happy with this review. I have this pattern since two weeks and still looking for the right fabric. Is stretch really necessary? Will certainly make it now I have seen how it is in real life and will look at the pocket issue. I'll write a review when I'm done.

That's a really nice-looking coat. THe pattern looks like a winner--pockets aside!

Thanks for the review. I'm considering getting it, and it's very helpful to hear about good and bad points (those pockets!) before I make it.

Your jacket looks fantastic (and I love the color)! Thanks for reviewing this new pattern, I'm adding it to my wish list.
