Great save on this oh, so chic jacket. You took a casual rather plain style and created an interesting, stylish raincoat. As always, another beautiful piece of work, Barbara.

Hello, gorgeous! Now that's what I call perseverance, making your own G-U-S-S-E-T-S. Not only do I try to AVOID them altogether, I can't imagine drafting my own. That being said, I LOVE the look and the fit of anything with G-U-S-S-E-T-S. They just make ALL the difference (I say). This raincoat is so chic, and, of course, your addition of those unique buttons over the snaps just make it. :o)

Stunning jacket--how brave to just make up your own underarm gussets. These are one of my most favorite things in the world.

I am so glad that you rescued this chic jacket from "hiding"! You definitely will be stylishly and practically ready for the wet weather

This coat is fantastic. Amazing how you saved it from tight sleeve syndrome. The entire look is fabulous on you.

Great raincoat! I love the elegant simplicity of it and the big hood, of course!

I was looking at this the other day, it's lovely to see it made up - your's looks far better than Burda's. Great save with the sleeves.

Gorgeous coat! I can't believe it, but I (and two friends) have this same fabric. None of us have sewn it yet. :) This looks *great* on you!!

Barbara, you are SO talented! I have so much trouble sewing gussets - can't even imagine drafting them. Your jacket looks wonderful on you!

That is one cool, clever, chic raincoat! Your changes and fabric choice give this even more style than the original. I love it!

I have almost forgotten this pattern by now, I love the way it looks on you so much that I will have to put this back to my sew list! Thanks for the review.

You are amazing drafting your own gussets. Great save. I had forgotten about this project but remember when you bought the fabric.
