Here are pictures of a casual man's jacket made with a pattern from TMx5.  The jacket is from a cotton home dec fabric and using a TMx5 shirt pattern: two-piece sleeves, collar with semi-stand, front zipper installed on the outside, no pockets on the outside but two double welt pockets inside, one on each side of the front opening in the facing (for cell phone, keys, money and ID) fully lined with Bemberg rayon.

Thank you all for the nice comments.  I did not have quite enough fabric to get the plaid to match across the sleeves and the front of the jacket.  Also the two piece sleeve pattern was difficult for plaid matching.  I am still learning the hard way on some of these things.

I think it's really nice and a fun jacket. And it's useful, with the proper pockets. Good stuff!

Hi Mike,

please let us know about your experience with the lining.
Also if you could take a detailed picture
of your welt pocket, or inside sleeve at wrist area.
Thanks,
Cristina

I no longer have the jacket in my possession.  I made if for the person in the photos.  I will try to get the pictures you requested this weekend.  The lining went fine after I figured out that the lining hem should be cut about 2cm below the finished hemline for the shell.  I watched several Youtube videos on lining a jacket and especially how to finish the sleeve lining by machine.  That is complicated, required a lot of pinning and basting and was totally confusing. But I got it to work.  I used the bagged method for installing the lining, which is virtually all done by machine.  Next time I will make the jacket shell hem wider.  It was 1.5" on this jacket but I will make it at least 2" next time so that I don't have to worry so much about the lining jump hem peeking out below on the finished garmet.  It did not peek out but it is about 2cm away, and after some wear it may slip down, and I may have to take up the lining a bit.  I hope not!  Also, next time I will sew the lining to the facings before applying the facings to the shell.  I did it the other way around and it worked, but I think it might be easier to sew the lining to the facings first.  Again, there are some Youtube videos on that.  Thanks.

Hi Mike,

I think that your method to sew first the facing to the shell is the best
since the facing edges are so critically important
but if you didn't alter at all the facing patterns during the sewing process
than you can try also the other method.

I think that the new owner of the jacket
has already spend hours and hours walking through the streets of the town
just to be endlessly congratulated for such an unique jacket,
while the author's qualities are really remarked here on the forum

Your tips about shell hem and lining hem are really useful for us, thanks.

Cristina

Ya know, I like the way you miss-matched the plaid of the sleeve to the front.  This way, the eye stops at the sleeve, so the body doesn't look as wide as it might if the plaid pattern continued across the sleeve as well.  Whether done accidently or on purpose, well done!

Thank you.  I ran out of fabric length, so I tried to make the sleeves match each other and forget about the all the way across match.  You know, when you get lemons you try for lemonade.  But the point you make is one I never thought of.  Would you say serendipitous design advantage!   Thanks again.

I really like the pockets. I like how they are in the facing.
