I love my new jacket!
The pattern was basically painless. Pleats: fun, gathering: fun, easy lining: awesome, no zipper: hell yes! The fit was a bit large as usual, but that is fine because I do intend on making a belt at some point.
And unfortunately, the back pleat looks a little vaggy. (See last photo)
PS: This pattern does not specify which pieces to interface. I just did the collar parts, and I was going to do the cuffs as well, but got too excited and completely forgot.
Olive twill, polyester lining, buttons!
