I think your jacket looks *fabulous* The top-stitching looks wonderful and I, too, love the button choice!

Where the heck did my comment go? I was writing and still looking at your photos, and I lost it -- ha! At any rate, I LOVE your jacket, more and more with each viewing. You've got a good eye: That topstitching definitely makes that jacket. Otherwise, it would just be a big rectangle. Great button choice, too. I can't count how many times I've eyed this pattern in the pattern book. I don't really care for those funky drawings on the Built by Wendy patterns. It's not that the drawings themselves don't make the patterns apepaling, but I don't know, they're distracting or something. I want to really SEE what it's like, and your jacket SHOWS me. :o) It looks great on you! Thanks for a great review.

I agree that the topstitching really improves the final loo. Nice!

Congratulations on your jacket! You are so right, nice topstitching can really dress up a garment. Yes, you should give yourself a rating "promotion".
