After going thru at least five patterns, I finally came upon this Butterick 4690 to make the jacket.
It was lots of work to completely take the jacket AND dress apart! I used every piece to make the new jacket. Even the facings that were on the original jacket was used to reinforce the hems of the sleeves and the bottom of the jacket. I am well pleased with the outcome and will wear this tonight to a meeting I have to attend. I'll post a review on Pattern Review as my entry to the Recycle-Reconstruction contest.
