    I’m with Ralf on this one, I wish I could make a jacket as nice as this. I would wear it every day :) Really nicely done, and I like that you gave it a green lining too :)

      Thank you for the very nice compliments! (I’ll tell my dad). I found the pattern very difficult, but then again, I’d never done menswear before or an “expert” pattern so it probably wasn’t a wise choice on my part. But if you have experience with lapels and pockets, I say go for it. It did turn out better than I could have hoped!
