This is a great pattern. The step-by-step pattern instructions with photos are excellent. Yes, somewhat challenging to sew with so many small pockets and shoulder tabs but these are the design details that make this jacket so cute! I used a tan bottom weight cotton and found that using the pinking shears on most edges works well to limit any fraying. Used a print quilting cotton for lining of the hood. Also used a jacket zipper from my stash. Have started on a second jacket in green fabric.
