Love the jacket, by the way, makes me want to make myself one, but in a teal color. You did an excellent job!

Had a hard time seeing the price of the pattern---they're getting so high!

I also use tailor tacks becuase they are consistent and reliable, for the most part. But I alsways use a thread that matches for the exact reason you mention- often thread(s) get left behind in seams and you don't want to see any leftover of a non-blending color. Very nice job and very cute jacket!

Ouch, did you line this -and- bind the seams too?? It should be one or the other :-). Oh I see, you could just have sewed the lining armhole seams the regular way and tacked the lining and outside at the underarm to keep them together, much less fuss and same result. Hate how patterns have you do this weird stuff.. And spending a lot of time on something means it should be cashmere, silk, or something that you're certain won't start looking wilted after a couple years. But meanwhile your jacket is really cute, and you look gorgeous in it, which is the most important ;-).

Nice top, and and it looks good on you. Don't worry, most people won't recognize the colors from the pattern envelope. :)

A very pretty top and so beautifully finished - definitely a keeper that you should sew again.

Beautiful jacket inside and out, you should be very proud of yourself. Glad someone else has a "helpful" cat - my tabbycat lies across the ironing board watchihg me sew and then I wonder why I've got stripey hairs on all my newly ironed clothes.......

Great pattern, great fabric, great construction. I love the way you bound the facing and armhole -- very professional. It's a gorgeous jacket.

So pretty. How much do I love the eyelet? I also liked reading about your personal history. I'm glad you're making up for lost time!

Very nice. I love it when the cat helps. Mine used to try to help cut, fortunately she couldn't wield the scissors.
