The reason I made a second jacket is mostly because I bought some blue faux-suede and the lining at Wal-Mart for a total of $6.
I purchased the zippers and ribbing from Wawak.com for $15.
For $21 I have another faux-suede bomber jacket.
I used my Bernina 1120 to sew it.
Here is how I inserted the zippered pocket:
First I ironed interfacing a 1/2" bigger than the opening on the marked pocket opening on the inside of the fabric .
Then I pushed the facing through the opening and pressed.
Next I put double-sided tape on the zipper and centered it in the opening face down from the back.
Then with a zipper foot I sewed the zipper in by sewing as close to the opening as I could.
Finally, I sewed the bag to the facing, keeping it free from the garment.

The pattern calls for a 24" zipper for the front that must be shortened to fit. I simply used a 22" zipper.
The pattern also says to slip-stitch the liner to the jacket. I used my machine as much as possible and only needed to hand stitch 4" of the opening .
Thanks for stopping.
