This is a cute pattern with lots of options. How did you finish the edges of your fabric - since it was so ravelly? I am assuming this is an unlined jacket. Do you think the shape is too boxy for a fuller figure?

I used French seams to enclose the ends. I had previously used the same fabric to make a dress, which I finished with satin bias binding, but that didn't work well. Yes, the jacket is unlined. It ends a couple of inches above the waist. I'm really not sure how it would look on a fuller figure, probably the best way for you to find out would be to try on something similar at a store and see if it works for you.
