Love your version and thankyou for all the wonderful details within your review, particularly regarding interfacing. The end result is fantastic... sometimes the stash knows best!

Patty, I love your choice of fabrics, and the many fine details you used to make this jacket a work of art. Truly lovely, and you look marvelous in it. This was fun, wasn't it?

Fabulous jacket! Time to pull this pattern out of the stash and sew it up! Love the contrasting sleeves and collar.

I honestly don't think you can achieve a better fit or finish on this, done to perfection! Absolutely fabulous, and you have completely sold me on this pattern. I very much appreciate all of the details and hardwork you put into this and am inspired by your work. Wonderful tip as well on the needle, I wish I had done that when backstitching my collar by hand as I kept catching threads. Beautiful fabric combo as well...just fantastic!

Great looking jacket! Nice job!

This looks fantastic on you. I love those inseam buttonholes! Too sad about the independent fabric shop closing, but glad you could enjoy the two fabrics now from that source.

Beautiful!!! I really like the idea of top stitching the lining seams - will have to give that a try next time I make a jacket!

Oh, Patty, this is GORGEOUS! I've never seen an inseam buttonhole either and it gives it a very couture look. Fabulous colors on you. Great entry and thank you so much participating in the contest!

Well you certainly haven't lost your touch for gorgeous jackets. This is truly exceptional in every way from the color palette to the gorgeous fabrics (in your stash?!) and wonderful construction techniques. And I absolutely love your frustration factor rating system!
