I like it, especially those pockets, your use of ultrasuede & the cuffs. Great style on you and nice fit. Did you make a muslin or any alterations?

Love your jacket! I have the pattern cutout and am thinking about making it in cream corduroy. Thanks for the review.

mClones: I did not make a muslin or alter other than to petite it at the waist and narrow the back which I do to every pattern.

Perfect casual jacket. I like your buttons and contrast cuffs.

A great review. I love the use of the contrasting fabric for the cuffs and the contrasting topstitching.

Looks like the perfect casual jacket, and I love the details you added. Re: the facings. One of Nancy Zieman's books suggests cutting the front facings in an unlined jacket so that they are shoulder width at the top, above the bustline. That way they are included in the armhole seam and won't flap. Maybe next time this change would work. There is a next time, isn't there? This jacket is too cute and versatile to make only once.

Nice jacket - looks really good on you - am adding pattern to my "coats to make" stash - can't have too many of them!!

Thanks for making this up in denim! My mom bought a jacket recently at Gap that has a similar style and wanted to make one up like this. Your version looks great.

I like it! I passed on this pattern previously, but I've changed my mind after seeing yours.

Love the lines on this jacket! I've passed it by many times seeing only to cropped jacket in the pattern pics foreground. But this jacket is wonderful! Love your large buttons.

Wow, I really like your boucle jacket. It looks just like the ones that are in all the fashion magazines right now!

It's amazing what a difference fabric makes. Same jacket pattern, two different views and they totally look like two different jackets. Great job.

Your green jacket picture popped up on the side bar when I was reading reviews tonight . It looked so pretty I had to read the review. Great results with both jackets - the newer green version and the older denim version.
