Plaid fleece makes a cozy casual jacket. This pattern runs large, so made a Small with no size modifications other than shortened the sleeves 3". They were soooo long!!! An unlined jacket, I added an interior front panel over the pocket bags to neaten the finish of the insides. Also covered most inside seams with 1/2" black twill tape, a first for me. The more I sew, the more I like the interior of my garments to look nice too. First time to put in a separating zipper and found it to be no problem at all. Lined the pockets bags and inside collar with soft gray corduroy. If I make it again, I may try narrowing the armscye and sleeves a little. Otherwise, this is a perfect, slouchy, casual jacket I find I am reaching for whenever I go out. More about the jacket: http://www.lisascarolina.com/2016/12/a-perfectly-perfect-hiking-jacket.html
