I like the sleeve pocket idea. Lovely jacket.

KarlaB: I made clumsy darts in the front & back to reduce the boxy, shapeless shape of this jacket. I DO prefer jackets to cardies, I'm still searching for that perfect informal casual indoor jacket

Ditto on the sleeve pocket comments! I'd never seen one before! Very pretty fabric, and it looks like a very nice and flattering fit! (not boxy-looking at all IMO)

This is beautiful and very clever adding a sleeve pocket! It looks great on you from the pic.

Ditto on the brilliance of the sleeve pocket! I'm so stealing that idea.

Thanks, Miausiau. I had one on a RTW jacket, and it was really easy to copy. (Mary Mulari taught me to do pockets).

The sleeve pocket is brilliant, just the sort of personalized touch self made clothes can have.
