How do I match seam 1 near neck neck on pattern. It will not match for front and back.

Nice job. You did a lot of work to restyle the pattern and it really turned out well. Your son must be really pleased. It is unfortunate that the major pattern companies are getting rid of their men's patterns. Burda and Kwik Sew are about the only ones putting out anything new. Simplicity has a couple of things in their Project Runway series, but at the same time their older patterns are going out of print.

Thanks for a detailed review. My fiance wanted a wool coat and I had to adapt a women's pattern for him, as there were so few men's styles to work with. Great job copying the Urban Outfitters coat.

Great copy......a lot of work! I love the inside cuff. What a wonderful gift for the lucky young man.

Very nice job. You did a lot of redesign to get to where you wanted. I'm sure your version is much better quality than the Urban Outfitter one. I'm working this pattern currently and it's not an easy pattern to do. I'm forced to go the route with all the exposed zippers. Gahhh.
