What are you most proud of? The fit. It took a lot of time, and two muslins to get the jacket juuust right. The sleeve heads could still use a bit of adjusting, but overall I'm really happy with how it turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time! Tailoring is not something to rush through. Plan on giving yourself plenty of time to make this pattern, and don't try to skip any steps. The key to a great tailored piece is patience.

Thank you! I am so happy with how it turned out, even if that plaid matching did give me some grief. ;)
