|vent prior to buttons|
Instead of a traditional sleeve vent, I have a two piece sleeve with a fabric rectangle inserted into the back seam and pressed to the sleeve front. It's simple to construct and interesting to the eye. Buttons hold the sleeve vent in place. There are also three elbow darts which shape the arm nicely.

I love the finished jacket and will enjoy wearing it. Not everything I make has to be my absolute best work, nor do I have the time to always make an extra effort. The main point is I find joy in sew.
