Just reading through reviews of this jacket and found your tip on finishing the facings! Thanks for the great tip. (Do you have this listed under the tips section?, hint, hint :) ) Since I already ironed on my interfacing, I'll have to save this for another day. Great jacket and review!

Your jacket looks fabulous and I love that skirt too. Did you make that as well? Thanks for the review.

What a cute jacket! I've got it cut out and ready to sew. I wondered what size D-rings to use. I bought 3/4". I hope they'll work. I already had the fabric and couldn't find ribbon so will be using buttons instead. I hope mine turns out as well as yours did.
