Cut the patterns below once for each color of fabric. Put the jacket together with plain stitching. The narrow band at the front is for buttons, but if you sew an "inside-out" one, it's better to use a zip-fastener, in which case the band should be narrower, cca. 1 cm. Sew the two separate jackets together on the wrong side of the fabric, leave out a slit at the hood for turning it back to the right side. Turn it back to the right side, then sew a line of stiches close to the edge on the right side of the fabric for decoration. Close the slit at the hood. You can pull a cord into the edge of the hood for gathering it in around the face. I sew pockets of the other color onto the fronts of one side only, so as not to make the jacket too thick (the pockets only need to be sewn on plainly after finishing them with a narrow seam), but you can have pockets both in-and outside (whichever is which) if you wish.
