What a beautiful jacket and fit. Do you think that PR review photos sell more LH patterns than the envelope photos?

Beautiful jacket and I agree with the other two reviewers.....your jacket is better looking than the pattern envelope. Great job and nice fabric.

Irene, I think more people have become familiar with LH patterns thru PR than any other source. I don't know whether that translates into more pattern sales, but seeing a review with photo like Tina's gorgeous jacket certainly helps. Your sleeves look very good Tina, far better than the original.

Thanks everyone, for your kind comments. Unfortunately, the photo really doesn't do the jacket justice. The chenille doesn't show its soft texture well in the photo and the front band really came out much nicer than you can see in the photo. I think this jacket would make up very nicely in the Wachter's chenille that jlg used for her beautiful Piazza jacket. Too bad the Wachter's chenille is not my color :>(

This looks like it fits you beautifully -- shoulders, sleeves, sleeve length -- and since I am also a "short-legged pear," this is an inspiring review!

Lovely jacket, lovely material. Thanks for the idea to use lighter weight fabric on under collar for thicker fabrics. I love my Bistro jacket.
