Stellar job on this magnificent jacket! I learned a lot reading your review, too. I followed Kenneth King's chat last night, and someone asked what sets sewists apart with regard to experience. Your work is a perfect example of a polished finish setting you apart as an advanced (not to mention talented and creative) sewist!

Love it. Did you have to use special care in ironing? Your seams are so flat! What is the fiber?

Nannykk, I used my gravity feed iron turned down to about 3 (the same as I would use to interface). I'm unsure about the fabric content, but I believe it's some sort of nylon blend.

This is a fabulous jacket! Looks like it is one of those things we used to call 'carcoats' but with style. Great review and the photos are excellent.
