THis looks like a really fun coat - all those colors make it so unique.

I love the colors. What a fun jacket! I agree, a drapier fabric might be a good choice next time. Using the fabrics listed on the pattern envelope is always a good bet. Good job--lining a jacket isn't easy.

I agree that the jacket needs to be a bit longer, but it is still fab!!!!!

Your fabric choice is definitely causing the poof. Next time try something more drapy. You did a good job on fitting the jacket and congratulations on getting the lining just right.

The fun colors you used will surely warm up a dreary winter day. I think some of the "poofy" issues will settle out once you wear some "softness" into your jacket. I think this jacket is cute because it's different! Good job.
