    Thanks!
    With interior I rather meant the canvassing and padding. Sorry for not being more clear on that.

    oh, yes that's all period accurate as well, except the padding, i went a little less pronounced around the shoulders than might be seen in the 30's

    Yes. A roped shoulder would have been contemporary with this style, and taking a look at some modern peak SBs, fashionable today, too. The natural shoulder gives it a more 20s air.
    Simplicity never goes out of style, and never comes into fashion.

    Great job on the suit! Once you finalized the pattern how long did it take to finish the suit?
    Workwear is the new Black.

    I'd say it took me about 20 hours off and on for a few days,
    as for those cuffs it's hard to say, it almost looks in the picture like it was folded back like a pant cuff would be, but in that case you would have to turn it wrong side out to sew that curve in, otherwise on the couple pieces I have with cuffs like that they were usually backed with a different material that you would just sew to the raw edge of an unfinished cuff and have it roll back inside,
    don't know if i'm describing it quite adequately but if the sleeves on your jacket are too long it shouldn't be hard to do

    Ah of course you mean just like trouser cuffs, so I'll turn the cuff back up inside sleeve and them sew lining over fold cool !
    your suit is gorgeous
