After some initial fitting problems, I took off the sleeves, took in the front panel and re-fitted the sleeves. The true colour is pale blue/cream/beige check with silk dupion in light blue for lining. Finish is blue cotton ribbon with cream braid on top. Chain for weighting is on the bottom hem.

This is beautiful and was worth all the effort in reshaping the seams and re-inserting the sleeves. It gives a great fit. Well done.

Your jacket looks great. I bought some Linton tweed at Sewing for Pleasure 2 weeks ago and will be making mine for a wedding in July. Well done, I'm really looking forward to taking this class.
