That turned out great! Very tempted to pick up aNatural but the rust is nice there. Any comment on the fabric weight?Got the rust linen jacket. I might me in a minority but as a night working, vampire ginger I actually need a linen jacket and a hat in the sun. And actually finding a good linen summer jacket is so, so much harder than it should be. The only critique I'd say is there's not enough taper below the draw string. I agree with the sizing advice of going true to size but if you don't want a box fit the drawstring can only get you so far because it can't do anything for the frumpiness on the hips. I did a little guerilla Covid tailoring and added 3 inches to the dart that is in the back already, below the drawstring. That really makes it pop.
This is a before and after. The drawstring is cinched the same amount in both.
