Notes Finally!!
This jacket was a BIG job. I started already in the spring and had to take a break for 3 months. The plans also had to be changed a couple of times. The jacket is again reversible and three-layered to keep wind and water out.
For some reason a black collar was too short but fortunately I had a extra fabric in hood which I was not cut off. With that, I figured out how to get the reversible hood attached and put it inside the collar as well. There are two buttons – hood and collar.
The black side of the front decoration went rewritten because I was not happy after sewing several times the bias-tape. Fabric went wrinkled. I had to even change fabric on the top of front but luckily I had fabric left. (So invention hat on the head).
Last winter I lost 3 reflectors so I had to figured it out how to keep the reflector in place.
I left the hem of the jacket open to allow the fabrics to settle better.
The pockets also had to be carefully considered so that they would also function as a inside pocket on both sides.
The buttons are silver but look a little reddish in the pictures. There were originally D-rings on the backs but I didn't like it anymore so I switched them to buttons.

    What patience you have to stick with this through all the tricky sections!
    Hopefully such a bespoke jacket will make you feel good (and pleased with your achievement) as the cold weather sets in.
