Verrry interesting that the pattern is no longer on Loes' website. I betcha there was a drafting or sizing error, because the description said there was supposed to be three inches of bust ease and five for the hip. That doesn't sound like your experience!

Elona, View B's ease is supposed to be 2", with 3" at the bust. I'd say it has about 1/2" ease at the hip (probably not true--more like an inch). But my tummy has "fluff," and that might be throwing things off. Sigh. The shoulders fit the way they're supposed to, and the bust ease is about right, it's just those darn hips!

It's beautiful--a shame the sizing was off.

Too bad, but thank you for the helpful review.

It's so gorgeous Debbie! Can't you wear it as a blouse with a camisole or short tank top (one that ends above your hips -- maybe out of a silk lycra or silk knit for the "slide over the outcroppings" help it can give) for modesty if need be? It's too stunning to give up on. (I hate LH's seam allowances being so tiny for just this reason. No room for error.)

Thanks for an honest review-you are helping other sewers avoid a problem.

It's a shame you don't like this one. You did a great job of matching the front pieces. It looks very nice but if it doesn't work for you then, it doesn't. Someone will surely love this.

awww, bummer, it looks so pretty (well, it's made out of the fabric mart fabric I intended to buy and then was gone before I got around to it LOL). I guess we'll have to wait and see if the other view fits better. A nice gift for someone, though!

Lovely jacket and you did such a great job matching up the front piece. Very helpful information you shared.

Debbie - It would be a shame to give up on this jacket. Why not insert a godet in the hip area on the side seams? I have done this more than once and, the one time anyone noticed, thought it was a wonderful design detail.

Debbie, maybe you could save this beautiful jacket by making it have side slits? I love the CF matching.

Catching up on reviews: It looks really pretty in the picture. Shame it doesn't fit the way you would like.
