If I am honest with myself, I realize that I get a real bang out of making a jacket, much more so than many shirts and certainly more than making pants. I live in pants; they are essential to my wardrobe. But yawn. Of course, the worst day sewing is still very, very good.

The brown sleeves and front placket is from a linen remnant. I added a single welt pocket using instructions from an old issue of Sew Confident. I sort of like it with this recently finished brown striped shirt.
I am just about to cut out some much needed black pants and a white shirt. I promise.
