Beautiful jacket going on there. The fit looks perfect on the dress form. Can't wait to see the finished product on you.

This is destined to be a knockout, especially with bound buttonholes. You mentioned tapering the sleeve. For the most part, I think the method has been abandoned, but with slim sleeves they used to add a dart or two at elbow level which gives the sleeve a natural bend. 2 days ago I discovered a pattern making book in my stash - original publishing date 1968. The darted sleeve was the simple version of getting the fit of a 2-piece sleeve. It would be too late now, but, if interested, it might be something to look into for the future. This will be a lovely jacket!

Beautiful Jacket!! I would love to learn it if there is a trick to getting the lining "windows" for bound buttonholes lined up.
