Your topstitching on both sides of the seams looks SHARP! I'm glad you showed pictures of it, it helped show the yoke seams.

What an amazing job you did! Your jacket looks WAY better than RTW, so beautifully stitched and so flattering, which is not the first word that normally comes to mind when talking Polartec. Thanks for all the great tips about working with this fabric, too.

Really a wonderful job, looks professionally made. I want one now, maybe add this to my project list.

I have to stop reading these reviews; I keep finding patterns I want to get. Love this style, & your jacket came out great.

Beautiful job Kim, there's not a ripple to be seen on that zipper. Did you need to use a stabilizer at all?

Thanks for the great description of the fabric and the link to Seattle Fabrics - it seems like a wonder fabric. Your jacket turned out great! the topstitching makes it look very RTW and from the photos on your blog I can tell it fits REALLY well. Excellent job and wonderful review.

I really like how your jacket turned out. The topstitching looks so nice too.

Awesome! I adore Jalie patterns too, but haven't tried this one yet.

You did a nice job on this jacket. Polartec is easy to work with but can have a tendency to result in a homemade-looking garment. Yours does NOT have that look. It looks very good on you and perfect for activities on cold days.

Great job! I have added this pattern to my wish list.

Love it! It looks great on you. All the details look really professional.

Thank you for this review! I'm still trying to figure out which Polartec fabrics to order (from Malden Mills) & which patterns to use - you just added another one to the mix! ;-D
