Time for the last installment (and tons of pictures) of my tailored-ish jacket.
After adding the collar facing, the front lining and some trim,
all the jacket needed were it's button holes,
and presto, it was complete.
I actually made the jacket too large. It's really snug on Onda, especially the boobs, but I've got a good 2" more than I really need in the chest. Plus, I can take the waist in more as well. I'll know this the next time I use this pattern for a non-tailored jacket.
These buttons are most likely 30s men's buttons. I used them because they helped tie in the gray from the black of the jacket.
At the shoulder, the front apex seam and that back seam matched really well.
Here are some photos of me in the jacket prior to me going out for the evening to the pub crawl.
The pub crawl was a lot of fun. Apparently we did 8 bars in 7 hours. It felt like two hours, really. We got a lot of looks for the Friday bar crowd. It was fun. I also got a lot of compliments on my jacket. That's always nice. Here are some of the pictures from the crawl. More can be seen on the Facebook page.
That's it for me. Have a great day!
