I made this suit, in a red wool with black lapels, about 5 years ago, and had a really bad time with the lapel on one side--I couldn't get it to lie flat--but my sewing skills are advanced beginner, they probably weren't up for it. Yours looks gorgeous.

Absolutely gorgeous! I'll cross my fingers it doesn't get too wrinkly for you when you wear it!

It should be noticed; it's very striking. I've promised myself not to buy any more jacket patterns, but I do love those lapels and pockets. Great outfit!

What a great pattern! Enjoy your wonderful jacket, even if it crinkles. That's a design feature... !
