This is GORGEOUS! I had my eye on that pattern too, but haven't gone further than that. Now I'm motivated again.

Lovely! I've worked with ultrasuede on many occasions and it's lovely. The color and detailing of your jacket is beautiful!

This turned out wonderfully. Any chance of a picture on you? Thanks for reviewing this pattern, which caught my eye when the mag came out.

This is beautiful--I love the color ultrasuede that you chose, and the lines of the jacket are so stylish.

Absolute perfection!! It was definitely worth the hassle!!!

Irene Q said...
BEAUTIFUL jacket!! I agree - the pattern has great lines and doesn't need the draped details. And I didn't notice the curve on the breast pockets - very nice detail. Thanks so much for reviewing this!

MichelleE said...
Stunning! I would love to see a picture of the back, too. Your stitching looks incredible, by the way!

What a wonderfully done project. It looks very RTW and the quality is even better. I'd love to see you wearing it.

Robyn - this is absolutely freakin' amazing! And so worth all of the hardwork! I thought the snaps were part of the original plan not an add-on...cause they just fit the jacket so perfectly! Beautiful, stunning, wonderful!!!!

Thanks for the compliments, y'all! I made some pants to go with this jacket. I'll get the spouse to make a photo of me of the whole ensemble when I review the britches and update this review with a photo of the back, too.

I liked this design when I saw it in BWOF and am impressed with how well your ultra-suede version turned out. Thanks for such a thorough review. I've never worked with ultrasuede so it's interesting to hear about it.

Yes, it is worth all the cursing. It's beautiful. Kudos for tackling ultrasuade, I haven't been that brave yet. Good review.

I missed this review - don't know how that happened. Wow, this is fantastic! I was just looking at this pattern but unfortunately this isn't drafted for my size. I was so excited to see that someone (you) had so successfully made a stunning version, I love it.
