As always I enjoyed you review and the details you provide. The jacket is lovely. I am a fan of this style of jacket as well.

Super jacket! You mentioned that you interfaced the seams. Can you explain this technique or is it fusible stay tape?

Beautiful jacket, well executed. I agree with you about the BWOF patterns that are classic and timeless. Well done.

Your jacket is gorgeous! I too constantly refer to the Singer book on tailoring.

Ohhhh! I'm salivating over this. That is a wonderful jacket! It looks like very high end RTW. You do beautiful work. I love the pattern (I'm a fool for mandarin collars) and the fabric is yummy.

The *library*?? Sigrid, not only do you have us jealous with your amazing sewing skills, you've got to make us imagine a world where the library carries BWOF?? Lovely jacket. I have this issue and the jacket I want to make is in it too.

Thank you all for your positive comments. Winifred: I take ca. 4 cm of fusible interfacing that I fuse on the hemline. Upper side cut with pinking shears to avoid a straight line. This is not in the book mentioned, but something I learned long ago. !Comment and review edited to change the word seam to hem! I did not interface all seams. Translation mistake.

A stunning jacket! Makes me glad I've kept all my BWOF magazines even though it's tempting to have a clear out now and again!

This jacket is PURE PERFECTION, Sigrid. It fits you beautifully in every respect (I suppose due to that whole muslin thing, huh :O)? I REALLY like your "unofficial" method of doing the FBA. I'm going to try that, too. (Just bookmarked "Sigrid's Boucle Jacket.") Five years old, perhaps, but a true classic NEVER goes out of style. Whenever I'm looking at a stand-up collar, I always look for that curved collar piece just as this jacket has. The collar lays so nicely then. I LOVE THIS! Oh, yeah, and the book looks like a great reference, too. I'd better see if it's on Amazon. :o) Excellent review!

Sigrid this turned out fabulously well. You have a gorgeous and timeless jacket that you should be able to wear for years. As always, your construction and your details are impeccable. Thank you for the great job of documenting your process here.
