Utility jacket

I just completed this jacket and it turned out fabulous, the detail with the top stitching, pockets and flaps really make this jacket look like a miniature version of a full size jacket. The instruction we're very easy to follow and the jacket went together easily even though I hadn't sewn a zipper in a garment for 40 years! Thank You for a great pattern!

YES! This is my new favorite pattern. It works up so well for guys and girls! I was afraid of hoods and this pattern showed me how easy they are. I like that there are so many options available. I made one with the casing and one without and I don't know which I like more! Clear pictures and instructions as always. Thank you QTπ!
