Here is my new pink jacket. I just did not like the real long sleeves any more. So this one I cut it kind of 3/4 sleeves. It's not too short, not too long and I felt very comfortable with it while working with all my banking paperworks.
Fabric was wool tweed (I'm not sure it's tweed. I got to check the fabric material book) But it was not thick, firm surface. To secure the fabric I ironed interfacing for the entire jacket, then sergered all edges before sewing pieces together. So it's almost like building suit style.
I have big shoulder - 40cm (compared with women normal size) so I did not want to use too thick shoulder pads. Those were hand trimmed down to half size. Collar and Belt were cut from 5-inch width pink stretching lace trim and the lace edge was totally advantage taken. Sleeve hems were top stitched with lace also. Closing by a small hook attached at lace belt.

AND.... Voila .... not the best photos though because I forgot to iron the sleeves.
