This pattern is hard, not because of the construction, but because of the instructions. If you’re not up for a challenge, don’t do this to yourself.
If you must, please do sew a muslin. And instead of spending precious time trying to decipher the instructions, improvise.
I took this already difficult pattern and made it worse by using a nonrecommended fabric that required underlining (hence the negligence). Some of my seams are a little bulky, and I need to add a snap to the inside of the jacket to keep the heaviness of the material from weighing down the left front, but I love this jacket anyway.
