Ann, hate to post on Sewing Workshop threads, but I like this pattern and your interpretation so much better than the new West End. but then I am not a fan of zipper closures for a fast thrown on. Kaaren

Love it! I'll be hunting through my Burda Magazines to see if they included this design.

You definitely improved upon the pattern with your tweaking on the button placement. It's a very cute jacket and that fabric is amazing! LOVE.

Now that looks like something you could wear ALOT. I love a hood on a sweater for when I'm on the internet!

That is really gorgeous fabric and smartly used for this pattern. It looks wonderful and I like your change for the button placement.

Great jacket. Moving the snap made a big difference.

Hi Ann, Moving the snap closure really helped a lot, although if you look at the pics on the pattern, it does hang open quite a bit at the front. The jacket looks great on you, and I love hoods, so I completely understand your frustration with the lack of patterns. Maybe you can just use this hood on other patterns?? S. Betzina's coat last year, which I made and love, love, love has a hood. I had to make it much smaller (I have a pin head!), but it works great. I'll try and review it in the next day or so! Mary T

Gosh, I really like that, thx for the review. I have some double faced wool that I am not sure what i should make with... maybe this would work.
