Linda D, Patti Jo--I think PMB gives you a good fit based on your measurements. However those little indent curves are still hard to account for in measuring, I think. I have a fairly good measurment with the program, but things still stand out a little at the back at waist line. Thus with center back seam, I can take it up a tad in the waist center and eliminate that excess fabric. Thank you all for positive feedback.

Beautiful jacket, Linda. I really like the princess lines and the braid detail.

Nice, Linda! I have to echo Linda D's comment about PMB. I have this also and thought the program took this into consideration. Maybe that's why I am not very successful with PMB! I, too, have the neck "roll" standing out on many of the things I make. I thought I was stretching the neck before sewing, so I take care to bring the iron to the cutting table and without removing the pattern, fuse a stay tape to it. (In some cases, fuse the interfacing). Careful trimming, grading, sometimes stay-stitch plus- I still have the problem. My SO thinks it's because I have a hollow chest-my collar bone (right terminology?) is too prominent. On the other hand, I just may be overdoing it! Love your jacket!

Linda, since you used PMB, what swayback adjustment do you still have to make? I have PMB too, but I'm just learning to use it. Your jacket is very nice.

Marybeth, good suggestions.

Very pretty fabric, braid and design, Linda. As to the neck curl: steam with piece lying curved over a tailors ham or rolled towel? brooch pinned across the neckline? great scarf tied and pinned around the neck? OK, I'm out of suggestions :)
