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

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.
