After sewing the jacket together, I loved how neat it was and was so happy that I chose to use black double knit purchased from Vogue Fabrics. The problem came after I had chosen to completely line it with Jacquard diamond polyester (which is beautiful) purchased from Fabric Mart. The jacquard is so noisy that it is embarrassing to me. It sounds like a rain coat. Guess what? In spite of that, it is still my go-to jacket until I make another. There is something that I haven't shared on most of my posting about alterations. Almost every pattern must have a waistline adjustment of one inch.
