I love the fabric combination you have used and the frogs top it off great! Nice jacket, looks stunning!

CarolynGM said...
You are right -- it is a very slimming style. I wish I had your stash! It's amazing what you were able to pull together for this very striking top.

Lovely jacket, it looks beautiful on you.

BeckyC said...
This is a very elegant jacket on you. I think it is very slenderizing with the vertical lines. This pattern is great. Thank you for the great tips on the sizing.

Debbie Cook said...
Very pretty! How cool to use SB fabric for your SB pattern.
5/8/06 7:37 AM
Lisette said...
Your jacket is very elegant and it suits you perfectly.

A stunning outfit! and you are right - it is very slenderizing! One to add to my wish list, I see! Thanks for a great review!

Lovely. You always manage to put the right fabric with the right embellishment for the right pattern. You've done it again.

Attractive and flattering outfit, Ann. Just FYI the current Belle Armoire features an selection on fabric collage for clothing, and this pattern is one chosen by the author for several spectacular and yet wearable garments. It's worth taking a look.

Patti B said...
Wow; spectacular jacket! Glad to hear about the lack of fitting issues in the pattern too.

ChrisK said...
What a fabulous jacket Ann. Yours looks so much nicer that the one on the envelope.
5/8/06 9:46 AM
Penny Carlson said...
As per Susan, this pattern is actually on the cover. Ann, it's beautiful. Will you use it as a top or a jacket? I like this pattern, but not sure how I would use it (so it's just sitting in my most-likely-to-use pile).

Really stunning on you! Looks better on you than in the pattern photos!

Rhoda K said...
Ditto all above comments! Very classy.

I thought the pattern photo was not very flattering; your outfit is the very opposite! It looks fabulous...and I think I'll have to get this one after all ;)

Your beautiful jacket inspires me to try another SB pattern and go scrounging in vintage shops for lovely closures!

I just love easy patterns that turn out to look beautiful. Yorus is the perfect example of the latter.

This will no doubt be a very classic pattern! I know after seeing your design that I will want to buy this pattern the next time Vogue is on sale. Carolyndh

Lovely jacket, Ann.

Dear Ann, I have had this pattern for a while and the picture on the envelope makes it look quite fitted. I was hesitant...but your jacket looks great and you look so nice in it...this is why I love Pattern Review! Thank you for sharing all your sewing...also, I am a huge Sandra fan, I can't believe you bought fabric from her! I think I would have slept with it under my pillow!! LOL

Wow! I really like this jacket. The fabric choice was great and yes it is slenderizing! I am all for that.

Nice look, nice fabric. In fact, much nicer than the pattern drawing would indicate.
