Incredible job for your first jacket. You look terrific in your suit. Jackets usually have shoulder pads, even just tiny ones, to support the weight of the fabric and tailoring details. They are there for construction purposes as well as appearance. 1/4 inch will do, or even just a sleeve head (a bias strip of lamb's wool) to fill in the top of the sleeve. You did an excellent job. Brava! Sue

Your suit looks retro, but not costumey. Good work!

It looks great. It's very wearable for a vintage design as well.

That is absolutely and completely beautiful. I am so not a suit wearer, but if I were, that would be the one for me.
