Nice job on the sleeve change as well as the piping. The collar is really lovely on you. Nice choice. Try choosing your pattern size using your above bust measurement and comparing that to the bust measurment on the envelope. You might need to make a bust adjustment but you generally achieve a closer fit to start with.

It looks super cute! I'm planning to make this one soon, now I'm wondering if I'll be unhappy with the sleeves. Thanks for your great review!

Wow, gorgeous jacket. Love the piping and the whole fitted look and it looks divine on you. Good to know the pattern runs large.... sadly means I can't make it so you've saved me money on a pattern.

Darling jacket! The sleeves look perfect. I also would suggest buying your pattern by your upper chest measurement and then doing an FBA if necessary. Beautiful!
