The lining is in!! I knew it was not going to be easy and it was not. With that being said, glad I did it and would consider doing it again. It is far from perfect but it will serve the purpose. Here are the before and after pictures. If anybody wants details, I will be glad to share.

Well done Pam, you've done an awesome job. I love Purple and blue too. This being the first one you've done will give you lots of inspiration and confidence for the next one. I love the feeling of lined jackets they always give a better fit to the jacket etc. Once you've tackled something hard the next project won't seem half as bad.
I wanted to ask too, where do you live in the world? Love Chris, Newcastle, Australia.

Well done, sis. And I didn't hear you scream! (P.S. Purple is my favorite color, too.)

Did not know. No screams just groans. Blue is still mine with purple a close second. If you have a fleece jacket and want it lined, I will help.

Thank you. It is far from perfect but it looks good and it feels good wearing it. I might need it sooner than I planned, it is only 57 degrees F, or 15 degrees C. I want summer temperatures back.

Well done! Watch out though for Noah (Carolyn)...she loves purple!

I understand why Carolyn likes it, I am starting to like purple more.

You did it. You should be proud of yourself.

Good for you. Next time will be easier because you've built some confidence.

I am already planning another one. The next jacket is shaped a little different, and hoping it will be easier. But I am sure the sleeves will be a problem again.
