Casual jacket with pockets and no closures. I am petite and so I did have to shortened this jacket by 4". I choose to leave the edges raw and used cover stitch as decorative stitching around jacket body, band with integrated collar and the pockets. Also, since I omitted the cuffs, I widened (1.5") and shortened the sleeves (1.5") and then used cover stitch on the sleeve edges. ( I added some photos showing how I did the in-seam pocket for the sew along.)
