Well, this was the last item in my winter wardrobe. I nearly didn't make it, but then patternreview had a lined jacket comp and I saw that Eddi Frantz left a comment on my blog encouraging me to sew this classic style (I can't believe he visited my blog...if you pass this way again Eddi, I love your columns in Australian Stitches!). He recommended a metallic fabric, but I had already purchased this wool. Halfway through, I was a bit despondent at how drab it looked, so then I changed to these rather fanciful buttons. It was a tough project by I am satisfied that it fits so well...no hollows at the bust or straining at the hips.
PS the photos are just plonked in this blog because I am on a borrowed computer and I need to get the photos up before the competition deadline.
