The jacket is unlined (see pattern description), and the seams are sewn with a straight stitch. I would have serged them but the fabric was so thick it scared me!!

OH MY GAWD!!! This is beee-ooooo-tiful, Lou!! I need one. Would you whip one out for me, too? :-) And I swear I think we're soul sisters....I was just browsing through Kwik Sew looking for a short princess seamed zip up jacket pattern (for stretch fleece) and lo and behold, there you are posting it. Gracias!

Great jacket! I really like the way you placed the animal pattern. Is it lined? If so, what did you line it with?

What else can I say? I LOVE it! You really are an inspiration. You've come so far in your sewing skills. Way to go!

Wonderful jacket. Looks like it'll be very comfy in cold weather.

Another amazing creation Lou! Your jacket is great, the fabric is super. Faux fur is great, warm, albeit messy, stuff.

Looks fantastic, Lou. I think you win the prize for first item from NYC fabric, plus you used a pattern from the tripl. Too cool!

Oh My god!! I am drooling over this stuff. You are just too awesome Lou. Now you have to come to Boston wearing your new coat :) Can't wait to see the skirt and other creations. This is so great. I think at this rate it wont be long before you reach your 200th review ;-) Keep up the good work. Its inspiring!

I haven't got any of the fabric into a box yet! I'm buying the box tomorrow :-) I've also nearly finished a pink and black stripey sweater with matching scarf, it's very french. This new fabric is making me very brave, I've drafted a skirt myself (with Deepikas help), and the collar for my sweater! Reviews to come tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up on the fur hooks Nikki! I'm not sure i can be brave enough for a hat, but a scarf sounds good.

Oh Lou, it came out so good!! I am really happy to see the "miscreant" pattern put to good use. You are so brave.

I love it Lou! Great jacket, I really gotta make one too now. I wonder if it would be a practical thing to have here in Hawaii....

I love that jacket! My little daughter is so into animal prints these days--she calls the "stylish" rather than "pretty," which I think is sophisticated for a 3-year-old.

Very cool, Lou! I love the fabric~so pretty! Maybe I will try this in a short jacket(if I'm feeling brave) or at least as an accent for a collar or cuff :o) thanks for the review!

Love the pattern, and it looks great in that fabric. Can I have you come over & help me sew my stash up? This didn't even have time to join your stash! ! ! I made a sweater our of a pink boucle type knit, & I am still plucking pink from things.

Lou, it turned out great! Maybe you could use those big silk-wrapped hook and eyes (they are called fur hooks, I think) if you want an invisible front closure..... Will there be a hat and scarf next?

Awesome jacket, Lou!

Very cute; much better looking than the envelope drawing.
