Jacket unit is complete
I was able to insert the sleeves this afternoon. I did not get the lining cut out as hoped. Here is a shot of the jacket. Sorry that the photo is not better; I used my Samsung Galaxy Player to take the photo.
I think I will add small shoulder pads and sleeve head to give the shoulder and top of arms better shaping. I had pinned one shoulder pad in place and I thought it improved the look of the jacket.
Normally with KS patterns I use a small in the upper chest and shoulder area, tapering to large at the bust area. With this jacket I decided to use a medium in the upper chest and shoulder area since I plan to wear heavier weight tops under the jacket and wanted the fit to not be too tight. This seemed to be the right solution for the fabric I am using for this jacket as well.
If I had just one more day, I could have finished the jacket. Next jacket may be a Sewaholic pattern.
