It doesn't look tight, it looks like a great fit. The fabric is a perfect match for this pattern. Your suit is stunning.

Thanks everyone for your positive comments. I plan to make a black skirt soon to wear with the jacket. When it's done, I'll take another picture that will hopefully show the jacket shape and details better.

The color is glorious - and perfect for you! Too bad we had to lose another store to quilt fabrics - but it was your gain.
