    I love this pattern but it does have some unnecessarily awkward design details. Next time I will roll the dart out of the neck and instead of using a facing to cover the zipper I will just sew the zipper in a seam as is done in ready to wear. This will make a cleaner look but the darts will have to be remove to do this. I have fuller hips and when I make it again I may eliminate the band at the bottom to accommodate the hip adjustment and eliminate the cuff band to match. I think this may make the jacket a little dressier. The instructions call for pulling out teeth from the zipper to accommodate the pattern. Absolutely not! I adjusted the length of the jacket to accommodate the zipper and my height.
