My first fully lined double breasted coat was in a wool fabric in aqua blue just like your fabric. I was 15 when I made it at school. Got top marks for it! I love your pattern looks so beautiful. Love ❤️ Chris

You were 15 when sewing this type of jacket ? I'm 48,... so need to cache in lots of years I guess..

Brilliant. To be making a jacket and from a checked fabric is a challenge that you have done very well.

Thanks ! Before starting the jacket I had shown the fabric to our teacher and she had given some tips to pay attention during sewing.
