I really enjoyed making this jacket and I was very satisfied with the outcome. The most challenging part, in my opinion, was setting in the sleeves (there are a few spots of puckering but I tried to iron them out really thoroughly). The jacket is very light and has a nice shape. I work in a laboratory and my coworkers have asked, when wearing this jacket, why I decided to dress up. Once when biking to the train stop a fellow biker said I looked like one of the actors in the movie Chicago (a rather bizarre encounter best not recited in full here). In any case, I can get away with wearing this jacket casually or with a white shirt and tie and it works. Mrs. Rat suggested that the next version could be made out of denim with a contrasting corduroy collar and some added flap pockets on the front. I will definitely keep it in mind as one of my future projects.
