Thanks so much everyone! Nancy, I know you won't believe this, but I bought the fabric in the red tag bin at Joann! I think it was 2 dollars a yard...

Great job on this little jacket and I love the pop of color in your lining! I have this pattern in my stash as well as the fabric and notions ready and waiting to be made. Thanks for the review and the heads up on some of the instructions.
