Notes Used a synthetic suiting material from Joann, with a floral printed cotton for the lining. This is my first time doing anything with a lining, and I'm pleased overall! However, those curved hems killed me, and I haven't figured out how to work with those yet!

Really great pattern, though! Easy to work with.

    Look, this is what we are here for to advise each other!
    This gives us guidance on how we can do something and agree with the previous ladies and would solve it that way.
    Well done by the way!

    Nice colors. I often leave the lining unsewn on the hem of the jacket. I just finish the hems of both separately.

    Here's what I do with a curved hem: After you mark and press the hem where it will be folded to make the lower edge, run a basting stitch at the upper edge (single layer) of the hem. You can then ease the fullness of the hem by cinching the excess in with the basting stitch. Press it when done, and it should look very nice.
