Warning: Work in progress. I'm just putting it up because it finally has a complete lowercase alphabet & so is actually usable in limited cases.
The goal with this project is to create a humanist italic close to a Caslon, but within Fontstruct limitations. The x-height here is actually quite small: 6 blocks tall.
This one seems to stand small point sizes surprisingly well. At larger sizes, it begins to look jagged but that's actually kind of nice. Of course kerning is all over the place. Not to mention the lack of capitals, punctuation, etc. There will be changes. Use with caution.
