Final comment: What is great with copying a garment, is that you can adjust things that are not quite perfect. On the original jacket the bust-point is too high, and I successfully managed to lower that. Also: the shoulders were a bit too wide, and I improved that too. However: the armscye in back I think is still too wide I think, maybe the whole armhole should be raised. Not sure if it should stay like this in order to allow ease for clothes underneath the jacket. Overall though: quite happy with the result!

Quite frankly, I like your jacket better than the original! Great job!

Thanks for the nice comments! :-) I am very happy with the jacket, although the knit fabric was maybe not the best quality. I have to wear it carefully without bags etc rubbing, so it won't get ruined! :-)
