The sleeve, Oye Vey!
I'm definitely going to have to do something about the sleeve. I think I'll steal one from another pattern. I'm not sure which one yet. Maybe the two piece sleeve isn't for me. However, I'm liking the princess seam instead of the dart. This fabric is awful to work with. I haven't decided what the final one will be, but I'm still considering the red/white toile.
I'm much happier with the back. I'll just let it out a tiny bit in the center where it's pulling and then I'm calling it good enough.
The side looks really pretty good, except for the sleeve, of course. Tomorrow I'll go hunting for a new sleeve, do a muslin and then I'm ready for the real thing. I can't wait to get the jacket made.
