The jacket looks great on you! I agree with you about the fabric - a lining would probably help reduce the wrinkles.

Nice jacket! I just bought this pattern, mostly for the blouse, but now I really like your jacket. I am surprised that there are not more reviews of this pattern as it seems that there are some good options included in it. Thanks for your review!

Nice jacket. You did good! You could actually use a bar tacj to close the buttonhole a little which would allow you to use the button you have but tightens up the buttonhole. It wouldn't be noticeable.

Your jacket is a very impressive achievement! One suggestion I'd like to make is that since your pattern was designed for shoulder pads, you should include them. Take a pair of shoulder pads and put them inside your jacket temporarily and see whether that changes the fit under the arms and along the bust.
