I had all the materials on hand except the shoe polish. So cost was next to nothing.
Please keep in mind, all sewing was done by hand, as I do not own a sewing machine.
This is the first time I have taken on such a huge sewing project. And this took me 3 months. I wasn't confident I could do it, but when I tore the jacket open and noticed the horrible stitching job the first time around, I figured I couldn't do any worse.
This is also my first time posting here. Any comments and suggested ideas welcomed. I'm not sure I have the pictures in the right order, the computer was giving me a hard time. Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is something more I can add to help explain this process more.
