Thanks for the added info on turning inside out. I still can not figurer out that puzzler. Now I have added info on the trick.

Looks great. You can understitch by hand now, if the lining rolling is bothering you. Using a hand needle with single thread, stitch the lining to the seam allowances, making sure not to catch the outer fabric. It's a pain, but doable. Also, pressing with a lot of steam and using a clapper would help.

Hmm, I will have to think about the understitching, didn't even cross my mind since it wasn't in the instructions. Thank you everyone for your nice comments and suggestions!

It looks great! You got a really good fit. Did you understitch the lining? That would help keep it inside.
