This is so nice, very cool made in the linen. I've got this in my stash too, and I agree that this jacket's style is way ahead of the pack. I love your choice of lining--its gorgeous. Thank you for sharing, now I'm jazzed to make it.

A truly BEAUTIFUL jacket, made all the more so with your impeccable attention to detail and skilled execution. I SOOOOO agree with your conclusion in that this is superior to the jacket designs of some of the other independent pattern companies. I do NOT like "BOXES." :o) Maybe they're made that way to allow for embellishment, but I much prefer the stylish lines of this jacket. I've had this pattern for quite some time, and this is the first time I've seen it made up. Now I'm convinced that it needs to move to the TOP of my stack, or at least near the top. Great review!

This is a great jacket. I never would have noticed it if I hadn't read your review. I love what you did with it - the fabric, the lining, the buttons, and your attention to detail. It is now on my wish list.

Your jacket is beautiful, very nice sewing here. I've had this pattern since it was released, but never made it. LOVE your fabric choice - I am inspired!

Nice! I looked at this La Fred pattern but wouldn't have pictured it like this. Great use of the casual, slightly rumpled linen with a jacket with a lot of detail. Casual, but with loads of style.

Very stylish jacket. I've been tempted by this pattern but the seam with the corner seems intimidating, though lovely.

Incredibly beautiful. And so useful for so many occations. With jeans, linnen trousers, kaki trousers, skirts and dresses. Love the mixture of vintage looking feminine pattern and the rough textured fabric. Congratulations.
