I finished the jacket from AS&E Issue 40 today. I had originally intended to enter this in the children's clothing contest at patternreview, but I do not like it enough.
I have written a review of this jacket at patternreview. Fortunately my son likes it, he is going to Sydney tonight with my husband to visit the grandparents. It is a bit cold down south still, and he has grown out of all his winter jackets, so it is a useful, if not terribly smart, item of clothing.
