I know it is a 70s pattern, thus having large lapels. Since I am making it in a light-blue cotton, I am realizing I could wear this to a Prom. All I would have to do is add a tuxedo shirt.

This pattern has a lot of extra material to "ease in" to the armhole. If I made this again, I would try to adjust the armcap to remove some ease. I don't want to know how many times I ripped and re-sewed the shoulder seams.

This 70s style is slim fitting. I wear a size 36 and with this being a 38 it is still form fitting.
|Not lined or hemmed|
It is supposed to have a half-lining. I am thinking about making a full lining. That is if there is enough room!
I like this jacket pattern. I am thinking when I am finished with this one, I could make another in beige and with smaller lapels. This would be more my style.
Thanks for stopping.
