The front is defenitely too short relatively to the back. The hem should be horizontal.
It would be wise to make the fittings wearing the garments underneath for what it is meant for. Like Posaune writes, it looks like your back balance is too long but maybe wearing a sweater underneath will change this impression.
OK, I will try that and maybe pinning out some back length as posaune suggested.
An outer garment not only needs more width, it also needs a longer front and back balance, because it has to cover the garments worn underneath. Does your pattern instructions regard this aspect?
Yes, this appears accounted for. The chest line is extended 1/2" at the side seams and lowered 3/4".
The garment should also cover a shirt collar or a turtle neck, therefore the neckhole and collar have to be wider as well.
Yes, the neckhole radius is increased 1/8", which makes the collar band about 3/4" longer.
Does the center front touch your belly? It looks more like standing away.
I think it did before I put the pin at CB; will have to verify.
Will you have a center back seam and a yoke in your jacket?
Yes. I thought I would stick with the yoked style for this casual garment, and not return to shoulder darts until I am ready to make a suit jacket.
Maybe you should consider a belly dart. A less stiff fabric will collaps from the belly downwards and form ugly "bell creases" and cause a wavy hem. It is not allowed in shirt patterns, but there is no reason to avoid one a jacket pattern.
Do you mean like the "Donlon wedge" that is taken out of corpulent suit jacket and vest drafts at the side pocket?
