Almost there!

Just a quick check in!  Two weeks of traveling for work have slowed my jacket making process. 
In the intervening time, I got lucky in that Seamwork magazine released a vest pattern, which combined with a Burda Style suit jacket pattern, finally got me to a workable pattern. Here is the muslin with the new pattern. The only change is about a half inch in the shoulders.
And here is where I am at. Almost there. Just need to attach the lining, sleeve cuffs, hem band, and collar. Well and snaps. Luckily Wednesday is also a holiday, so hopefully he can wear his jacket this week. It's already weather for it. Alright, back to work!  Until next time happy sewing.
