Susan, your jacket is lovely. Would you elaborate on its unsuitability for you? For example, would this jacket suit a taller person, a person with broader shoulders, etc.?

I'm 5' 4" amd a size 16, and a triaganular shape, it may look better on someone that is taller. Its a shame it doesn't suit me as I love it off me

I have bought the patttern and plan to make it in a tan linen. I'm a petite pear, 5'1" and 120 lbs. Is there any pattern adjustment that could be done prior to cutting that might make it more suitable for petites? Is there enough room in the hips to go by bust measurements and know there'll be room in the hips through design ease? On tissue fitting the armholes seem very low, do you think adjusting this would help? How "challenging" is it I'm between beginner and barely intermediate sew-er.

I made this in black wool crepe years ago when the pattern was first published. It is the perfect throw-on jacket, as comfortable as a cardigan sweater but better looking. I wear it when I am dressed up or casual. Even in the summer I leave it permanently in the car in case I go into an air-conditioned restaurant or movie theater that is too chilly. In fact, I have worn it so much and so steadily that I need to make a new one as this one is getting a little ratty. Like a lot of the SW patterns, it is somewhat oversized. In the wool crepe the medium is fine but I made it in a light rayon brocade and a wool gab and in a less drapey fabric the medium was too big. When I remake it I will probably go for the small.
