Just wondering, what tailoring book were you using to help? I'm still new to sewing but I'm really interested in doing my first jacket. I bought this particular pattern and I want to be as careful as possible.

Wonderful! Thanks for the review! I don't know if I'll ever get brave enough to tailor for My Sweet Baboo, but I'm going to put this pattern on the 'get!' list...just in case... ;) Hope you get into the pattern reviewing habit!

Welcome to posting on PR. I hope you will post often so we can see your beautiful work. Your jacket is fantastic. I should know.... I was in tailoring class with you!

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments! I've really enjoyed reading all of the great reviews here, and have learned a lot in the process, so I was pleased to finally be able to contribute as well. In answer to Luckylibbet's question, it took a bit over 100 hours, but that included time spent reviewing techniques and stepping back to think about what I would do next. I think the next jacket will take less time.

Amazing work, I will have to make sure this stays hidden from my DH, I don't have the patience or skills for mens tailoring. You did a fantastic job.

I am impressed! Men's tailoring is SO much more difficult than Women's. Beautiful job. My husband will want one if he sees this!

What a great jacket! Very well done!

Awesome! I know to tailor correctly is time consuming - about how many hours would you estimate it took you from start to finish?

Very, very handsome jacket!
