The Victoria Blazer is complete and I have entered this as a second garment made from a new to me pattern. Unfortunately I am not real happy with the outcome and I knew days before that it was not going to be a jacket I will wear much, if at all.
The jacket is cropped. Because of a shortage of fabric I could not make the full length one. The front on me is shorter/higher than in the back. Due in part to no forward shoulder adjustment and even though the full bust measurement is more than my full bust, I probably needed a vertical FBA. Here is a side view of the jacket that completely illustrates my point. ( I feel very brave showcasing a not so flattering view; but it is exactly the biggest issue I have with the completed jacket.)
I like the jacket from the front and back views; I just can't go around in a way for people to see only the front or back. :-(
There are some other issues with attaching the lining and the lapels and collar. I think there could be a work around with that. I am just not all that interested in working on another one in a longer version at this time. Too many other patterns and projects to work on.

Next project is a McCall's Knit Jacket! More later.
