      Thank You! I’ve added a picture where You can see the inside. As I said I am new in sewing so I had only black lining material but black only was a bit boring. Contrasting color makes it the way I wanted :) I am not proud of the picture itself but Your wish is my command :)
      I also added a picture of a sewing machine I was working with while making this project ;)

      Thank You! It’s so nice to have an opinion of somebody who is good in the same field :)

      P.S. I love the idea and execution of a Superwoman Jacket ;)

      This sewing machine was in a guest house that I stayed in, in June when I went on a tour to Bulgaria. I don’t know if it worked but I loved it all the same. I have an old Singer treadle sewing machine fully restored that belonged to my husbands Grandmother and it works very well. But because we never loose power, I don’t have a need for it. It is a beautiful piece of furniture instead.
