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!

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

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!

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.

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.

Great jacket!! Yours looks a lot better than the one in Burda.

To quote Ronald Reagan, 'Well, Cidell, there you go again.' You are awesome! I do love the stripes and the nouveau cut. So Hip!

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!

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...??

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

Adorable. It looks like it took a lot of time to make.

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..

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.

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!

Cidell, you make the CUTEST things! Isn't seersucker a breeze to work with?

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!

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

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.

Cidell, that's so eyecatching! Gorgeous!

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.

Sewing Chick said...
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?

This is a great look on you

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...

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!

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!
