I LOVE you jacket, and I'm NOT a hoodie person. :o) This is what I'd call a "tailored" hoodie, in a class by itself. Your choice of lining for the hood is beautiful, as is the jacket fabric. GREAT job, and a very helpful review.

Nice jacket, great jobs with the seams. Lots of good information in your review.

Your jacket is great. Re seam allowances, after avoiding Burda WoF patterns unless they were really wonderful, I now prefer to add the allowances after I've made any adjustments that are necessary. Punch with Judy (Australia) has gizmos that connect two pencils and make it easy to quickly add either 1/4 or 5/8 inch allowances. I now check Burda, Onion and Ottobre Woman for styles I want to sew before I try any of the big 4.

What a lovely jacket. The fabric is striking and the design of the jacket is so stylish. Excellent review--I really appreciate all the details. I would never have thought of using the fabric you did for the hood and facing, but it looks great and really adds to the jacket.

great looking jacket. I especially like your fabric choice for lining the hood. Very informative review.

I love this. Overlaying the facing with that beautiful angora wool lace was a great idea. Lots of good information, too. Great job.
