It took me sooooo long to sew this up. I have a pattern book from Korea and it doesn’t come with full size pattern. So I had to draw first and make all the lining pattern for my self. Furthermore, this tweed fabric disintegrated on me every time I tried to handle. The collar part can be improved because I took too much seam allowance during sewing and it ended up smaller. Also I probably had to skip interfacing on the undercollar because this fabric is pretty soft. Overall I really like the results. I probably try again with other fabric.
