Really gorgeous, Kay. Elegant is absolutely the word for this. This pattern should be on your 'make it again' list, for sure.

Thanks for such a complete review of this jacket's journey. It helped me immensely to read about your alterations as I also am small boned (with some padding). Your jacket is a perfect fit and looks so elegant on you. Beautiful!

A beautiful jacket! I love the fabric, style and your workmanship....very elegant! Your fitting alterations for (as you describe) your relatively small frame are right on creating the most lovely looking fit and proportions. I too fall into this category of "small framed" so appreciate all of your helpful information regarding this.

This is so nice looking- wonderful work. I own this pattern so your work with it is really interesting to me. I have several vogues by this designer in my stash as I am impressed by his workmanship.

This is utter, glorious perfection, Kay! I think my heart skipped a beat when I opened the picture and saw the beautiful fit and style of this jacket. I'm so grateful for the time you took to document your fitting odyssey. I've been focused on similar fitting issues lately, so this went straight into my Favorites file. All your design and construction decisions, including the interfacing choices, have added up to a streamlined classic that anyone would be proud to wear. So impressive!

Superlative job of updating the style and fit of this jacket. It is lovely and shapely and just stunning. I agree that you should make it again -- it is so flattering and the fit is perfection.

Along with Linda G. ( and others I am sure!) I have been following your progress on this jacket on your blog. Absolutely love the neckline! What a beautiful face framing style. I want to have a NEED for a jacket as lovely as this, but I am enjoying retirement too much so I will have to live vicariously through you! Great job!
