This is a great jacket Nancy. I have considered getting this pattern. Thank you for the very detailed review.

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!

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

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.

Fabulous cardi/jacket! I'm sure the fabric you used is incredibly soft and cozy!

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!

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

It looks great!!! I made this and love wearing it...I would like to make another one with longer sleeves for fall.

Very cute!

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.
