here are the final steps of the jacket!
pin the lining to the jacket, all around facing-neck-facing and leave your seam allowance open at the end
sew the top of the sleeves of lining and jacket with a few stitches together, this keeps the lining in the sleeve
turn the jacket right side out
fold the lining up
and sew the down end also with a few stitches together
next pin the lining sleeve to the seam allowance of the sleeve (make sure its not turned around)
pull the sleeves through the still open hem, then pin the sleeve all around together and sew
last fold the lining up and pin it all around and sew with hand stitching
finished! I really like this pattern, I didnt do any buttons in it because I wear this kind of jackets always open. Next time I use it I will make the shoulders a little smaller, this way the sleeves will fit in better as well, I think. 🙂
