That is really flattering for a jeans jacket, most of them look so shapeless. You look so svelte!

What a coincidence. I just finished my jacket and am wearing it today. I used the fitting instructions to customize the fit of the back, bust and shoulders. They were very easy to follow. The only thing I would add is to check the sleeve length. I found it longer than normal.

There are ways to check fabric content with a burn test. I have found several on the internet. I like the way it fits you. You did a very good job.
