I adapted my original jacket pattern to have a feminine rounded collar and lapel, with a scalloped detail at back of the two-piece sleeve. There are flap pockets, with a welt underneath.
I'm very pleased with how the jacket turned out. It fits well (and it's comfortable!) and the fabric is beautiful and versatile (from Britex, seems to be unavailable). All told, the jacket probably took 12-13 hours of sewing time, including taking out both sleeves and resewing them *after* the lining was in place! Many thanks to my husband for taking the kids to the aquarium so I could have some uninterrupted sewing time on the weekend!
The jacket is fully lined in a lovely aqua rayon Bemberg (using the bag method). The sleeve hem is created with a separate facing piece.
Happy to be done! Now to start working down my enormous pile of lovely fabrics!
