I appreciate the amount of detail about everything that needed to be altered and how it was done.

I'm looking at that picture thinking, that can't be polarfleece! And it isn't. Beautiful. Great job on your alterations.

I'm glad you perservered in spite of your dislikes with the pattern - your end product is lovely. I love the overlocked edges. Nice touch!

Your jacket is beauty, inside and out. Gorgeous. I love the collar.

Wow, this jacket looks wonderful. Thanks for such a useful review. I've loved the lines and that flounce but I think I'm better off redrafting a TNT fited jacket pattern with these elemens than tackling this pattern after all. I admire our perserverance as well as that great result.

What a beautiful jacket. Love the color and the overlocking around the edge. Nice review.

WOW! Great looking jacket. It is so frustrating to have to make that many alterations. Also, I have found that with Simplicity, I'm often better off to go by my underbust measurement and the do the FBA. Thanks for the warning - but you got great results.

Your jacket is beautiful! I love the details you added with the new collar shape and how you molded the fabric so-to-speak to take the curves of the flounce. The color of the fabric is beautiful as well.

Thanks so much for reviewing this! I have the pattern but I don't really want to sew it in fleece and I am not sure what else to sew it in (I don't have serger).. So it is nice to see ideas. :)

Great looking jacket! I love how you did the edges with the Madeira thread.

Wow! A beautiful jacket and much better than the pattern photos too. Your jacket is so impressive, but those pattern photos are a snooze. Time for a photo swap on that pattern :) .

Superb in every way Belinda ! It reminds me of a similar imported from Germany, jacket, I spotted while snoop shopping in Noosa.

Very beautiful end result. Too bad it takes so much to get there sometimes but we will all benefit from your experience. Great review.

Gorgeous! Much nicer than the Woolies polar fleece jacket I have on at the moment to keep me warm!

Fabtabulous jacket!! I've been looking forward to seeing it finished and you don't disappoint (as usual).

Once again a beautiful garment, Belinda. Thanks for the very helpful review.

Thanks, Belinda, for your review! Love your jacket. I've been eyeing this pattern for quiet a while. There is a Simplicity pattern sale at Spotlight at the moment. I'm off to the shop.

Beautiful. I like your overlocked edges.

It still looks like a lovely jacket so even though you wouldn't recommend....I've got this one already : ( I'll take your alteration advice onboard when I attempt my jacket. Thanks
