Great jacket. I took some seminar with Cynthia this past weekend. Your week must have been fantastic!

thanks for the review and the extra pics. I love this jacket, have had the pattern but haven't made it. . . I think I was secretly intimidated that I wouldn't come up to Cynthia's standards! You have inspired me.

What a pretty jacket! Looks like a great pattern. Lucky you to get to sew with Cynthia. Have you made other patterns of hers?

Love it! I did the muslin when I was with Cynthia last September and had very little to alter as well. It's in the line-up to be made out of red raw silk. Great job, I didn't even think of a contrast collar! I can see all kinds of fabrics used for this jacket.

Unique pattern with those darts, vintagey and yet somehow modern at the same time. Great fabric choices and nice work.

This is lovely. Thank you so much for providing alternate views and closeups. It really helps to see what you did. I like the contrasting collar. Nice choice of fabrics.

Hi Anne: Am sending you a PM with these details but thought I would share with others, too: Here's the yardage for the CG jacket: Size 6,8,10 2-1/8 yard (45"); 1-1/2 yard (60") Size 12,14,16 2-3/8 yard (45"); 1-5/8 yard (60") Size 18,20,22 2-1/2 yard (45"); 1-3/4 yard (60") This assumes the collar is cut from the same fabric. I used less of the base fabric since I cut my collar from contrast.

Very nice. I like the darts; they look very classy. What is the yardage requirements for this pattern? I have some short yardage of a silk/wool blend that might work nicely with this pattern...

I love the curved darts on the jacket and the fabric choice for the collar. Beautiful! Thank you for the review.

Great fitted jacket, I bet it looks nice on. Like the collar contrast.

What an unusual pattern and I love the curved darts starting in the armsyce. It really shapes up this jacket to fit so well.

LoriV: You caught my typo -- a WEEK with Cynthia is what I spent. That, too, was spectacular.

Beautiful little jacket in elegant fabric! The darts are lovely, and your sleeves are perfect.

I love your jacket. The darts radiating from the armhole give it a vintage look. Very nice!
