Beautiful jacket on you Cidell! I'm not long a member of SPR but already loving your reviews and beautiful wardrobe..... all I have to do now is actually get working a lot harder to sew a few more pieces!

Cidell--I am waiting for you to make something that I DON'T love!! This is an awesome jacket, and of course, I want to make it. I haven't figured out the Burda thing yet, though. you did a beautiful job, it doesn't look like it would come together fast. Awesome!

That's so fab! I didn't even look twice at that jacket in the magazine, what with all the pretty dresses, but I may just need to make that now...

What a great jacket! It fits you so well. I can't believe you didn't have to make any alterations. Don't you love it when you can buy fabric for dirt cheap and make something that looks sooooo expensive?

Very very cool jacket. Looks awesome!!

I didn't buy this issue because nothing caught my eye. Why didn't this jacket get me? It's fabulous, and I love how it looks on you. Great job, and I'm looking forward to seeing the matching pants.

Cidell, that's so eyecatching! Gorgeous!

This is so cute! It looks like it took much longer than you said it did. This is the one issue of BWOF I was able to find at the bookstore so I *must* pull it out and get busy.

That is the cutest jacket Cidell - you did an awesome job!!!!

I can't believe that was fast to make. It looks intricate and I really love the way the stripes worked out. Very jealous of your lovely summer jacket!

I don't know if it is your fabulous sewing or the way you look in what you sew but I always get excited when I see a review from you!!!

Cidell, you make the CUTEST things! Isn't seersucker a breeze to work with?
scrappycat said... (7/1/07 6:57 AM) Reply
Absolutely fabulous. You are so talented. Will you please come sew for me?
fuzzygalore said... (7/1/07 4:13 AM) Reply
Ooh, this looks -much- better than any seersucker jacket I've ever seen :-). And it's great for the Maryland steambath, you were right not to line it. Really smashing!
CynthiaSue said... (7/1/07 2:51 AM) Reply
Excellent. your figure and talent make everything look perfect!
Powergirl said... (7/1/07 0:51 AM) Reply
Wow Cidell - that's a fantastic looking jacket. Thanks for sharing.

Sublime. I want it too. The styling of this pattern is really wonderful, but as always, your fabric choice takes it further than the magazine photos.

So cute! You've inspired me!

I love seersucker - this is great!

You not only have an eye for fabric with pattern but the technique to make it all work. I so enjoy your reviews. This is wonderful on you..
Ann Smith said... (6/30/07 8:33 PM) Reply
Adorable. It looks like it took a lot of time to make.

Beautiful match of fabric to pattern to a style that looks great on you...I really enjoy your reviews.

Lovely jacket, thank you for the review another to add to the must make list :-)

Love it, Love it! I have some striped linen/hemp I was considering for this pattern but cut out another from April's issue. Now I am kicking myself!! Are you switching from dresses to jackets...??

What a great looking jacket. You have added some wonderful pieces to your wardrobe.

This jacket looks great. I never even considered making this one until I saw your pictures. Great job.

Wow and then Wow again!! Absolutely stunning

Awesome jacket, Cidell! Another winner, but of course. It looked way too mod for me on the model, but your version makes one reconsider. I keep saying to myself that I will make something out of seersucker and your jacket continues to inspire!

To quote Ronald Reagan, 'Well, Cidell, there you go again.' You are awesome! I do love the stripes and the nouveau cut. So Hip!
Peggy L said... (6/30/07 2:35 PM) Reply
Great jacket!! Yours looks a lot better than the one in Burda.
SansSouci572 said... (6/30/07 2:20 PM) Reply
It took longer to take the pictures! All the stripes make it look complicated! It looks like a Hurley jacket I had my eye on.

I love your jacket...I have fabric in my stash for it....but by the time I get around to it ...three more patterns will be out that I like too...You did a great job on it....I love the seersucker.

That is wonderful. Great job. I love the stripe placement.
Annika said... (6/30/07 12:17 PM) Reply
Whoa! Utterly fantastic! It looks great on you. I wouldn't have done bound buttonholes or lining as I am the laziest woman in the world. This jacket doesn't need them.

Ohhhh, this is so perfect on you. I love the whole shape, but the pointed placket is what takes it over the top. It's wonderful!

Cidell, this is a wonderful jacket. I will browse through my BWOF issue tonight, as I didn't notice this before! Beautiful done.

Oh, Cidell, another stunning creation. This looks fabulous on you. Thanks for the review. I need a summer jacket too, and hadn't considered this one until I read your review!
