I am on to jackets now because I wear one to work everyday. Trying to get the perfect fit, I didn't want to make the first jacket out of expensive fabric. This is some kind of a polyester blend I got years ago at Windmill Fabrics in Boston. The trim is the wrong side of the fabric and I lined it with a pink polka dot fabric I had in my stash. The fit is close. If I made this again, I would lower the neck edge and maybe add some width to the front so I can add buttons or some sort of lapped closure.
