I have to say, I'm kind of liking this one. I suppose it doesn't hurt that I've got a bolt of wool kimono fabric, lightly patterned, in a lovely soft orange color -- not as bright as the pattern envelope, but still in that general family.

I think I might need to try it...

I do like it, and it would make a great seasonal transition piece. I would have ordered it immediately, but I've had a lot of fitting issues with the Hotpatterns I've tried. It's a simple design and should be easy to alter but I wonder about that shoulder line. It's awfully straight and sloping!

If this pattern works, I think it would be very comfortable and versatile. Hope someone tries it soon. I'm keeping my eyes open for just the right fabric.

I ordered it but it hasn't arrived yet. There's a tutorial up on You Tube. I am definately planning on making a muslin because I haven't figured out Hot Patterns' fit yet. I thought it would be a good work look for my non office job.

I like the look of this jacket, and it does seem simple. But I have Sure Fit designs, so I may try to copy it with that, before buying the pattern. I think it would be nice to wear as an open jacket over tank tops and pants.
