What a gorgeous outcome to an amazing project. I am so inspired. I feel a little out of my depth, but I am going to try to make this jacket as conscientously as you have. Thanks for the great, detailed review.

Knitter, the fabric is a wool/cashmere/ blend (woven). It is a lovely soft fabric.

Great review. It is a lovely Shrug. Is this fabric a knit or is it the woven wool/cashmere blend? I missed this review ealier.

Love the shrug. Do you like your pretty red dress form? Who is it manufactured by?

This is an extremely informative and helpful review. I think you have captured the essence of what Simplicity was aiming at - but didn't quite hit!

Really lovely!

Your jacket is lovely! You have done so much work making muslins, fitting and altering patterns, and the final shrug shows this. Your shrug has good fit, and the original tucks and shaping. You deserve lotsof compliments when you wear it.

Oooh - noice one! That is one gorgeous jacket.

Gorgeous, Belinda. As usual, I admire your tenacity in achieving the perfect outcome!

The person who came up with this idea should contact Simplicity and draft a new design. This one is way more timeless than the one on the pattern envelope. I have liked all the versions. Ingenious is right! Congratulations on a wonderful garment.
