Great jacket and I love your fabric choice. It's most unexpected which I love! Great job on the underlining and your first welt pockets. The whole jacket is beautifully finished.

IMO, this is one of the cutest garments to come to PR. I wish I had this edition of Burda, since my subscription started later than Feb. You are certainly to be congratulated for such a fantastic job of making this! I also thought your review was quite thorough, especially with the pictures of each stage.

I love your jacket! When I first saw the pictures I thought you had used a coated fabric, so I was surprised when I read what fabric you actually used. Kudos to you for tackling such a difficult pattern for your first BWOF.

What a great jacket to see on a dreary morning - cheered me right up. Love the fabric, and congrats on those welt pockets.

Well, I am impressed! My first BWOF was a 2 seam skirt!!! This jacket is very modern and trendy..and making in your fabric choice brings it to another level. I love it. I was alittle concerned with the puffy collar, but in the right fabric it works so well. Wonderful review, detailed and full of great tips!

This is the cutest jacket ever! I love the style and your fabric choice is perfect! It looks adorable on you! P.S. It will also make you easy to spot if I ever see you in G.R.~it's one of a kind!

I can't believe this is your first BWOF pattern, you did an amazing job. You've reminded me I have this exact jacket in my UFO's and I really must finish it now the weather is cooling down.

You should be very proud of yourself...this is not an easy jacket and you made it beautifully. It's such a happy fabric, I love it!!!1

Absolutely charming jacket, jent, and you've constructed it expertly. Shockingly difficult project for an Advanced Beginner, and you nailed it! As to how to construct a separating zipper (or any other detail), just keep doing what you did; i.e., lay the pieces on top of each other as they're supposed to be in finished state, and connect in any way that makes sense to you. And voila! You've mastered advanced sewing. Just like that. Lovely, Lily

I've sewn for many years, & I would not have tried this pattern, although I'm adventurous! I think you'd better notch yourself up from advanced beginner!! Super, detailed job all around, with not a lot of back up sewing books to help. You've now pushed me to try something way above what I think my level is, thanks a lot!!

The minute I saw your photo I knew which pattern this was. I've had my eye on this one too. Your jacket is very stylish. Great review and lovely jacket.
