Another Jacket done! Simplicity 1320

I finally finished this Jacket that I started in Jan. It will be ready for fall. I seem to always do the wrong seasons jacket... I have to plan this better. I used pattern Simplicity 1320 I completed view C

The solid fabric is a cashmere wool very drapy and soft. The woven fabric is a boucle that is a synthetic blend. I loved the collar. I spent a lot of time fitting this jacket. I have many fitting challenges. I had to adjust for square shoulders, short back waist, full bust, slim arms, full waist, narrow hips.
I decided that I wanted the woven print down the middle instead of on the sides I thought it would give me a better line. There is a tab belt that needs to be sewn on the back woven panel that will give the illusion of a waste.
This fabric was given to me so this was my "toile" if you were. I am not sure I like the colorfulness of it yet. I think it has to do with a fall color pallet in the Spring. I am not sure I will make it again. I kind of like it and kind of not like it. I have the satisfaction of having finished something.
Now to start making the pants that I hope will fit me well.
