Anyway, I decided I wanted to make the Minoru Jacket from Sewaholic for myself. Although I have never sewed anything so complicated, I am going try though (and rely on the expertise of my professor). Right now I am still in the planning stages. I just ordered the pattern Sunday night and this weekend C and I are going fabric shopping in San Francisco. Let's hope I find fabric that works!
Here are some great resources for this pattern:

+ Sew-Along from Sewaholic
