Beautiful jacket, as always. The combination of two fabrics is very interesting and gives it the extra touch. You certainly should use this pattern again.

Hi Liana, I too am short-waisted and completely understand your situation over the pockets. Have you considered making a Fake small scale patch pocket placed beneath a bound pocket 'entry' to the real pocket? I am lost with out a pocket or two. I looked at the pattern envelope drawing and those pockets look huge. Maybe just scaling them down would tone down the overall effect. Beautiful jacket! You are very talented.

I love this. yours looks fresh and fabulous, the pattern drawing actually looks kinda dowdy. I like the twill contrast, that really adds to it.

This jackets' details are superb, from the sleeve bands and lovely contrast collar, to the hand-worked buttonholes and special lining. You look beautiful! I love the shape of the collar and neckline. Gorgeous!

The jacket is sooo pretty, Liana! And you're absolutely right: The collar does have the lovely stand-away effect shown on the envelope.

A pleasure to read. Lovely jacket. Perhaps the pockets would fringe into a rosette for the lapel?

Hello Liana, It is my goal to make Marfy patterns with the skill that you do. I have been reading your reviews for some time and find them to be very helpful. I have just received the 2009 Winter Marfy catalogue in the mail. It is my first one and it was like Christmas to get it and pour over the beautiful classic designs. Thank you for inspiring me to take the plunge! Regards, Gaylene McCutcheon Ottawa, Canada P.S. Did you find that the fusible interfacing has held up with your boucle? I have never used boucle before and am wondering if the fusible will stay fused to such a loose weave. GM.

Liana said...
Gaylene, I've never had trouble with the fusible not working on a boucle. I like ProWeft fusible or similar for this. It doesn't change the hand of the fabric.
