This is a lovely jacket and your use of plaid and the edging is an excellent choice.

Congratulations on a really beautiful sewing job. The jacket loks perfect on you, and I love the front facing bias treatment. The top-stitching is to be envied: quite a professional job, and as usual for your clothes, it looks great on you. Thanks for all your tips.

Cute jacket! I like the way it coordinates with your sage green tee. Your topstitching and ribbon details add a lovely touch. I also especially like the look of the bias plaid facing.

Very nice jacket. Like the topstitching look and neat idea with ribbon.

Thank you, Liana for another great review. I live in Southern Oregon, and we enjoy a very mild climate. This is exactly the type of jacket & vest we can use three seasons out of four. Even during the hotest summer the evenings do cool down. As always, I really apprecitate all the fitting and construction details you so generously share with us. I do believe I have this pattern -- I think I even know where it is! (8^D)
