I thought it was a mistake that the pattern type was a corset and also a men's jacket! LOL. I hope I never have to do a project like this one, but am eagerly following your progress.

Libbet.... Men's Jacket seems appropriate.... suggest a different category?

Can't think of one off the top of my head, since men's corsets went out of style in the Regency era (Jane Austen days). You did the best you could, given some limitations in the categories offered. And of course you know this, but the basic men's draft is in general very similar to the ladies', difference being width of shoulder first - even skinny men have much wider shoulders than ladies - and secondly the dart takeup on the front. Your adjustments are pretty much affecting the dart take-up, since shoulders are not an issue.
