These all came out so nicely, even the muslin. I'll have to sew this pattern up!

Isn't it fun to rework those TNT's? You're right, it is a classic.

Very pretty! That fabric gets even prettier, the closer you get. I love you detailed topstitching, too.

That is just beautiful. My Mom had a Pendleton jacket like this in a muted gray-greenish-black small plaid, very very stylish in the early fifties. Your review reminded me of that and of her. Your detailing is superb, and the color is so good for the garment. Thanks for the review and the ideas on modification.

Good looking jacket. I had a similar Pendleton sans belt and loved it. It was a red wool plaid. Your topstitching is top notch! BTW, what is a tiger tape guide?

Wow - this looks fabulous and I, personally, love that color. Great job.

Love, love, love it! What a beautiful classic. The shoulder pleat...Brilliant.

What a vintage treasure! Have you sent a picture to Louise? Of course she may adapt her pattern...but she would have to give you credit. Or maybe Pendleton: oops! I love the detail of the topstitching; don't you love tiger tape? I like the subtlety of the pleat. The whole thing is so Hepburn, too, a classic, indeed. Thanks for sharing and for the good review.

Very beautiful, you've done a wonderful job with this! And I love your linen version too. You and Irene have inspired me to check out this pattern.

Your jacket is lovely - the hand topstitching was worth the effort - it really is a nice design detail.

I like the details and the sentimental value of the jacket!

Both the shirt and jacket are beautiful! This is one of my favorite shirt patterns and I've always thought it was a shame it didn't have long sleeves. Thanks for the inspiration!

snaffles, the pleat is 1/2" deep. To make, I slashed the front pattern piece parallel to the grainline and spread it 1", then folded the pleat and trued up the edge at the shoulder seam. Not hard! Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

Love the little extra details you've added. The shoulder pleat and hand stitching really 'make' this. Great review.

You and Louise are a great combination. Your jacket is wonderful - useful, attractive and expensive-looking. And the pink "muslin" is lovely, too.

Very nice adaptation of a pattern. I could really use one of these jackets. Did you just add an inch or so pleat the length of the front?
