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.

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.

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.

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

What a fabulous jacket Ann. Yours looks so much nicer that the one on the envelope.

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).

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 ;)

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

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
