Colette Patern, lady grey. Finaly completed!! This was a bit of a stretch of the sewing skills- lets just say I have come to zen terms with the quick unpick. I’m not so happy with the fit at the back. I think in hindsight (sigh), the back peices needed a little shortening around the arm hole as there’s a bit of baginess around that area. In honesty, between making the muslin and the jacket I think I had selectively forgotten this adjustment was required because it was getting cold and I needed the jacket fast!! I didn’t use the horse hair canvas as suggested as it was a little tricky getting some and I really had to finish it quickly in the end. I do have some slight regrets about this. Overall though, I really love this jacket and would very much recomend the pattern.
