This pattern has only a partial lining which seems daft in a wool jacket so I drafted my own based on the partial lining pieces and the full pattern pieces. That's really all I am going to say about it because I either did something very wrong or my silk lining moved during cutting because I had a heck of a time getting it in without causing the outer shell to pucker. In the end I handsewed the hem of the lining to the jacket and made it work, but the result is not pretty! I underlined the peplum piece so that bit at least is OK. I also like the two coloured lining, although I fully admit that was because I didn't have enough navy to hand.
The lapels are cut as separate pieces from the jacket (rather than having a roll line) which makes it much easier to get a nice looking collar but it does create some bulk in the seam joining the jacket to the lapels.
I left out the front pockets because I knew I would never use them, but I still did real buttonholes everywhere, which my machine was not happy about in some places. I even made 6 buttonholes in the front before noticing the instructions only require 3 - you just sew one column of the buttons onto the front of the jacket and fasten it inside with a single button. Oh well.
All that said, I really like the finished jacket, it's a classic - especially in navy wool - with a twist in the details and the back peplum.
And now to get to all those other things I have been tracing and cutting....
