Great job! I love your topstitching. Your jacket should be on the cover!

Great jacket and nicely detailed review. Two questions: 1) What kind of snaps did you use and how did you apply them so perfectly? 2) When you say you lowered the feed dogs, how did you do that? (Maybe my machine can't do it.) Thanks!

I'm in awe that after making such a time consuming jacket, you took the time to write a very detailed review ;) This indeed was a tricky project in places, but you've definitely proved it can be done well. Very nice work.

Beautifully done. The top stitching really makes this wonderful.

I used size 24 heavy duty snaps from Dritz, and I used the hammer tool with it. I don't really have a trick for setting them. I do always put the decorative side on first, and I use those snaps to set the placement for the other side. If I get a little off in my placement, then they still match up with the other part of the snap. I try to measure on each one rather than just going by the marks on the pattern. To lower my feed dogs, I just flip a lever on my Singer 500A. Your machine manual should be able to tell you if you can do it. It is common for quilters, but I drop my feed dogs ALL the time in garment sewing. As for the detailed review, I have been saving this as a project in progress for the last few days. I had the review written by the time I finished, and I only had to add some pictures. Thanks!

Beautiful jacket! Thanks for the info about feed dogs. I'll try that. I usually sew tops and do not have big issues with bulky seams. Now, I'll have another trick up my sleeve! Thanks.

Wow! Beautiful work. Your close attention to all of the details really make this jacket sing. And thank you for the awesome review. I'm hoping to get brave enough to attempt a jacket here soon, and I'll definitely be looking to this for guidance and inspiration.
