What are you most proud of? Love the semi finished look, need to put sleeves in - but the fit is great. I'm naughty I just tissue fit, rather than a muslin!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Great pattern, easy to work with nice fit - gives you a waist if you haven't got one!

Looking good, lucky you to be able to tissue fit. I always get bogged down in the fitting I am also attempting my first tailored jacket atm and made 2 muslins over 3 days until i was satisfied with fit.

Ummm... I just don't like muslin making - I don't know why? Too much sewing I would say! I like Sandra Betzina's tip of adding an inch to the side seams, and adjusting the fit there.

This is fabulous! Love the 3/4 sleeve. The inside is as wonderful as the outside.
