Oh my gosh, Jan! Your jacket is just gorgeous! Love your choice of fabric and such a terrific pattern! Great construction - looks like you paid big bucks for it!

Wow, Jan, you have really outdone yourself on this one! Beautiful! And I have that issue of Threads so it's nice to know it came in handy as a guide in assembling this Chanel-type jacket. And Home Depot to the rescue--how resourceful is that???!!! Enjoy wearing this beautiful jacket.

Looks very nice - I'm eager to see a picture when you decide on the trim and apply it. This is a jacket I would wear many times.

Appreciating your review - I have this pattern and hope to also to sew it, so everything described is helpful to me. I agree with everyone - looks GREAT so far. Looking forward to seeing it on you.

I've been enjoying reading about your progress in your sew-along, and it's even better to see your jacket! It looks great! Some day I will want to get this pattern and I'm making note of your ideas. Like the others, I think the question of buttons depends on trim; I tend to like dressier buttons with jackets like yours. Can't wait to see how you finish it.

Beautiful jacket - be sure to bring it to the front so we can all see it when it is done. On buttons - it would depend on your trim. If you want it with that edge type trim, then I think buttons would be a distraction - but if the edge is simpler, then buttons would be a nice touch.

Great fashion piece. It would be a great addition to any wardrobe. Love the fabric and color!!!

I just bought that fabric and the same pattern (haven't made it though) so the review is quite timely. I think the buttons are a good idea, or a real "gaudy" style of broache (sp?) I too have bought patterns based on the waist size as I have the same fitting issue, it's not always easy to just make that part bigger. Nice job.

Your fabric is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to see the final version. I wish I could wear wool down here but too much humidity. The color will be perfect into spring.

Well, it's beautiful even if you're not finished. :) I just purchased that fabric from and I'm so happy to see something made from it.
