Good review. I am finishing this jacket and some of your dilemas were mine as well. I struggled with matching up the back, side, front facing attached to the collar as well. The pattern is poorly descriptive concerning this part of the construction. I also don't like how much bulk is produced with a upper/lower collar, attached to the body of the jacket in addition to a facing. I would probably eliminate the lower collar (when using an appropriate fabric such as fleece) next time. But, I love the design and uniqueness of this jacket. I am eager to finish it.
