You did a beautiful job on the jacket (and the skirt as well)! I never would have noticed that pattern, but it's really cute as you did it!

I love this as a coverup. But it also looks so very well made!

Boy, that's the best-fitting bolero I've ever seen. Seems like they normally hang in an unflattering way over the bust, but this one fits you just perfectly and is very flattering. I love your seam binding, too. :o)

Great combo!!! Thank you for taking the time to photograph the steps involved. A picture is worth a thousand words!

I made this last summer and had similar complaints about this 'easy' pattern. They skimp on technique in these patterns and thus I think it is harder rather than easy for a beginner. I too used my own finding for neck and seams. I think that this is much easier than using ready made bias tape. Yours is lovely and flattering.

Great review. I really appreciate all the info about choosing the right size. This style is just perfect for a light summer jacket.

What a great outfit! You've done a great job and it looks adorable on you! I'm just jealous that I couldn't join you for your PR weekend - cross Pacific is just too far!

I love how you show the comparison of the 6 vs. the 8. Very helpful. I think a lot of us use a bigger size than we need sometimes. Your pictures perfectly illustrate what I should be looking for.

Oh good, I was meaning to ask you for the pattern number for this. It's ever so cute, and I like the seam details with the topstitching.
