    ok ok… I dislike the colour and I would never again take a pattern with many seams for a check-plaid. BUT: This one is perfect! Each stripe matches with the corresponding piece, the seams are flat and exact. sleeves set in perfectly and the edges and the lapel tip are correct. The pockets I guess could have been set better; maybe You ran out of fabric. This jacket is so marvellous that I would love to see the back and lining. Soo well done! I love it.

      Thank you for the nice compliment, you are right about the pockets, I wanted to redo them and when I took a look at the scraps, there was not enough to work with and I really wanted them, so I decided to live with them. If you want to see the construction details, hop over to my blog where I put up a tutorial on bagging.
