to make the pockets drape more, you will need to cut on the bias. also it helps if the fabric is softer.

GREAT jacket! Why haven't I noticed this pattern before? I'll have to add it to my collection.

Ms. B, absolutely gorgeous. I was going through your list of pattern reviews and your sewing is spectacular. My goodness!!! Do you know the amount of money you save by making your own outfits? Of course you do. LOL. To think you can sew your own stuff and leave all these designer outfits behind, I love it. Simply wonderful!

I like your pockets better than Nancy's. The pleating and shape nicely matches the pleated sleeves.

Love your jacket! The lining is great too. I really love this pattern and I also want to make it for the fall in a light tweed.

Wonderful jacket! I had the same problems with the pockets that you did, except I didn't persevere and just took them off!! Yours looks wonderful, and the lining looks fantastic.
