Starting the Jacket

After finding several things I disliked about the jacket I made for Rei. I have decided to remake it out of a friendlier fabric. This is my first try at actually moving beyond the basic pattern directions and trying some tailoring techniques as well. Because of this, I'm presenting this as sort of a step by step sew along. I will post pictures with my observations as the jacket comes together. However, since this is my first time trying these techniques, there may be some issues that crop up due to things presented earlier in the series. You are warned, following what I've done exactly may cause you to encounter issues later. With that out of the way, lets get started!
