Well, the red twill jacket is done. And it doesn’t quite fit me. The sleeves are golden but the chest is definitely too tight and I needed more room in the stomach area than I expected.

I’m a bit bummed because it’s a really pretty color on me and once it was washed the twill was so soft. But it was an experiment to use up some old fabric and I don’t actually need the jacket so it’s no great tragedy. I’ll see what I can adjust with the seam allowance I have left, then put it away and make all the necessary adjustments to the pattern. Once that’s done I’ll run up a muslin before I try using it on the black brocade fabric in the closet. *shrug* Live and learn.
