Very cute jacket. It looks great on you, what a surprise to see my jacket linked in your review, thanks. It is a nice looking pattern.

Your jacket is very flattering on you. I love your lining fabrics! The button treatment in the front is very stylish

Okay, here's another one I have to go buy. This looks really nice on you. I love the fact that you've used colorful lining fabric - to me it's like a fun inside joke (pun definitely intended!).

Very cute. However I think the back bunching, and the front bunching around the armhole, are both due to not having shoulder pads. You can't really omit them without adjusting the pattern, unless you have naturally square shoulders, the extra in the armhole height just does strange things when it collapses. Try pinning in a small one to see?

Also, do you have enough seams allowance in there that you can just let things out a bit around the waist? You can always take it in later if you really decide to live without cookies (although I personally fail to see how that'd be possible..). And meanwhile you'd be more comfortable :-). Sounds like you have a wee bit of room in the darts too. Even 1/8" in each of these would give you some ease, and 1/4" would be perfect. I don't think binding the front seam alone would do much, although it's a good idea. Don't you hate it when you go back to the pattern picture and see that your precise problem is there and you didn't notice??

Love your buttons. Nice style; once again I like seeing it made up more than the pattern pictures.

Great review and very interesting details. I think this jacket has great potential and the style is definitely right for you! I love the contrast in the subdued outer fabric and the wow knock em dead lining. That shows you have refined sophisticated taste, but aren't afraid to get out there and smack'em in the face with it. Actually, that is what French women are very good at with their clothes so you are on the right track.
