The jacket looks really great. Perhaps I'll try this one. I've just discovered Sherry's Tailored jacket sewalong/ tutorial over at pattern scissors cloth, and this looks like a good pattern for it. She does recommend full interfacing but I do think your jacket looks good as it is. BTW, i think you meant to put a link to your blog, but it didn't come through.
