This is really cute! I've had the pattern in my stash for a while but have been waiting to see it made up on someone with a fuller bust. I think I'm sold now--I just picked up a wool doubleknit from Michael that I think would be perfect for this.

How nice to have a wool cashmere jacket. It's beautiful and fits you very well.

This UFO is currently hovering in my sewing room. I had some of the same issues with it that you did, and I like my methods of construction better than theirs. Seeing your result will make me finish my jacket, whether or not I make another one remains to be seen. Congrats on finishing a UFO!

Thick knit jackets like that are so comfortable, and look so much sharper than a hoodie :-). However it looks to me like you should have done an FBA - the horizontal flaps you had to omit could only work if the seam was below the bust, not right at it.

This looks very nice on you, and looks like a really nice sewing job here. Very nice.

Hi Nancy, thanks for excellent review. I am wondering why a knit is needed? What do you think of using a lightweight supple wool tweed? It doesn't seem from the pattern a stretch is needed. . .thanks for your thoughts!

This is so sharp-looking on you! Great job. I'm wondering too, if a fairly supple wool/blend could work. Hmmm...the descriptors (little stretch, stable, firm...knits) do indicate that they might work as well. Okay, you've gone and done it--I'm adding this to my wish list!

Hi Nancy, I came to look at your version of the RBCJ. It looks great. I wish I had read your review about double knit before I chose my fabric and got started. It was a little tricky for me!
