    Hi there-I so enjoyed this lesson until the gap appeared in lesson 4. Paul is putting on the first part of the jacket and apparently the editor did us NO FAVORS because the detail of the jacket is GONE!! Will this be fixed?? I would soooo love to see it completed. I don’t know much about jackets and such being female, so I need all the help I can get!!!

      We recently changed video hosts and looks like something happened with Lesson 4 where only the first 4 mins (of 12:49) transferred. We’ve gone to the backup and restored the whole Lesson which is now live.

      Sorry about that, looks like our backup file is corrupt too. We have the original footage so will get this re-edited and uploaded asap.
