I just finished this red Sewaholic’s Minoru, great pattern (and sew-along!) for newbies in outwear.
This jacket is perfect for the Dutch autumn weather, the hoodie, the long sleeves, the length covering my derriere. I just added side pockets and lined the hood, but other than that, it’s perfect as it is.

It was made in a cotton/poly blend twill, hefty enough to hold it’s own, but not too thick (it’s be impossible to sew those gathers if you make this in a thick fabric).
The green lining is a bit heavier than regular lining fabric, perfect to keep you warm!
