Thank you for this review. I'm about to trial this and your jacket is so dreamy. It was definitely your influence.

This is a lovely coat and the charmeuse tie belt gives it that added detail you can't find in RTW! Thanks for the review.

Beautiful. I can't believe this is your first jacket and you added a lining to it. Good for you! I find Connie Long's book Easy Guide to Linings to be very helpful for adding linings to patterns that don't have them. I'm sure you'll get lots of compliments on your pretty jacket.

Your jacket turned out beautifully! It looks so different from my version just because of the fabric and belt. I agree - that collar is so much fun to wear!

Oh, how timely. I've got some winter white wool crepe and I've been trying to decide what pattern to use for a jacket from it...this looks great! Hm.....

Oh that is stunning! I'm a big fan of the creme palette and that lining looks delicious!!

nice jacket. yet another example of a PR member making a design look so much better than examples shown on the pattern envelopes.
