What a GREAT review -- not to mention jacket! I especially like your brown striped version. I've contemplated this pattern several times myself. Yours are just lovely. Thanks!

Thanks for taking all the time to link up all that info; I'm too lazy to do that most of the time, so I do appreciate it when someone else does! Your fit perseverence is inspiring... ;)

Thanks for the detailed review. I love what you did with the stripes. Thanks, too, for the Nancy Zieman collar technique.

Thanks! I have a hard time remembering where certain things are on-line. It's good to have them listed in a lot of places!

Excellent review. I spent last evening tracing a pattern for a labcoat, and thought I'd skip the adjustment for a rounded back (it's only a labcoat, for heaven's sake.). You've changed my mind. Your jacket looks superb and your alterations really "kicked it up a notch".

Thanks --- very useful details on the alterations you made. I'm impressed with the effort you exerted to get your jacket to fit you just the way you wanted.

That's a great list of alteration sources. I've been looking for the NMSU one for several days. I always like your creations.
