I am so late in posting this, but great job on the jacket! I am glad you were able to get such good use out of the corduroy :)

Great job. I'm in the muslin process for this pattern. You are right about having pockets: they are a must for any jacket. I will be adding them as well. Great job and thanks for the tutorial links :)

You will wear your corduroy jacket to death and will look great while doing so.

Thank you all so much! This jacket was difficult to sew, but I learned a lot, and the result was worth it. :) The biggest issue I'm facing now is washing it. i wore it out yesterday, and got a smidge of dirt on an elbow, but I'm afraid to wash it or spot clean it! lol

Fabulous jacket!!! Thanx for the links. I especially needed the youtube/ one on welt pockets, so this is a wonderful find.

Cute jacket and fit is great! Glad to hear you tried the bagged lining and found a tutorial. I know I loved it after I tried it, but it did take some time to get the hang of.
