Very nice jacket. I just now finished view B. And I love it. I'll be wearing it everywhere. I used a leopard print from hancocks.

I love your two jackets and great reviews! I just sewed this up - should have checked out your reviews first, as I love your sewing and knitting! Now I'll just have to try View B - you look terrific in that print!

You look great in this jacket. I have had the pattern for a long time - am now much more inspired to make one for me and one for may daughter. Thank you for the zig zag tip for the seams also - I must try it.

Mamacita...I zigzag the seam together. For example, I'll stitch my 1/4" seam and then I'll zig zag over the seam edge. It keeps the seam together and flat. If I don't, the seams will start to roll at the edges. I hope this explanation helps.

I think this is going to be a dumb question but.... I have never sewed on fleece yet although I have two pieces in my stash. When you say you finished the edges with a zig zag to reduce bulk, I assume you mean exactly that...that you zigzag each "raw" edge of the seams. How does this reduce bulk? Does it help those edges lie flat. I have read (who knows where) that zigzag on the outside of each seam right down the middle of the finished seam line to hold those bulky edges flat against the garment underneath. Is this what you mean? I think not, but just checking! The fleece looks so innocent just sitting there in my stash but looks like it could be difficult to do what it should do...lie flat and not add bulk!

Love your fleece jacket--enough to want to copy it. Dolman sleeves tend to fold and wrinkle on me; maybe downsizing is in order--I love yours.

Love the look of this jacket on you. Color is so flattering. Every time I read one of your reviews of KS patterns I am amazed at how well you have mastered this pattern line for fit. I keep trying. Great job.

I really like this jacket. Such a simple, elegant look - and in fleece! It sounds like it runs rather large, unfortunately, but I could always size it down one size. Great color on you.

This is really cute on you and a terrific color. I love this type jacket for work and for at home - especially with added pockets to keep my hands warm. A nice job!
