Beautiful jackets: color choice and style are very special. Love what you did with the sleeves.

I noticed that, too, that the number is the same as a previous jeans pattern. :o( I'm not sure what to do about it, though. :o)

Annette, I, too, think your outfit is much more beautiful than those strange colored fabrics on the pattern envelope which had put me off from buying this Adri pattern. I do not know if you know that your pattern is the same no. as the Calvin Klein jeans patterns of a few years ago. In other words, your review is linked to the jeans review.

Wow! Your jackets are beautiful. I especially like the hot pink lining on the orange one.

I love the jackets. The whole photo setting is SO artistic, too--the Vogue poster, lace curtains, totes....yum-yum..better than chocolate!

These are beautiful jackets and wouldn't you know they are all in my colors - thanks for bringing this pattern to my attention - I love Adri but for some reason have not got this one so it's off to the store I go as I must - I must - get it before its OOP.

Beautiful jacket..very helpful photos! I find your additional hints on what you fused, what style changes you made, etc. very helpful. Did you find the sizing true to what you are used to with Vogue?Did you have many alterations to make?Thanks also for explaining how you self lined. Every decision you made was right on!

Beautiful jackets! I love the way you styled the collar.

I was just looking at this pattern yesterday, thinking "should I or shouldn't I"? Then I was completely caught off guard by how beautiful yours looks. Who needs Ann Taylor or Chico's when you can do *that*?! Just beautiful and worth all the tweaking and effort (something Chico and Ann don't do). BTW, I don't answer all the comments either but also love the sweet support from the incredibly skilled sewists out there.

The first thing I noticed on your jacket was the flare on the sleeves ... your addition! Well done on two great jackets, I'll be adding this one to my Wishlist thankyou very much.

Thank you for the review and all the helpful hints about lining. Your jacket is beautiful.

Thanks a million for the tip about backing the pattern tissues with fusible interfacing, Marji. I would have never thought of that, and I HATE tracing off patterns!
nimble said... (3/4/07 3:04 AM) Reply
You should send your pics into the company - they'd sell A LOT more of this pattern!!! Just gorgeous jackets and I love the outfit in the main picture.
Marji said... (3/4/07 2:56 AM) Reply
This is a pattern I've never looked twice at, but I love what you've done with it, and will probably now go buy the pattern. BTW, to preserve your pattern tissue you can iron it to that really inexpensive non-woven fusible interfacing, instead of tracing it off.

Adorable! I love the way you handled the hemline/dart situation. It does give the line just that bit of extra zip.

Fabulous!

Great jackets! I especially like the orange and pink one- kind of couture meets Maharani looking. It would fit right into 1967! Keep on sewing!

What beautiful jackets. Your color choices are outstanding. Beautiful

Wow! What great jackets! I probably have that pattern in my pattern collection since I like Adri patterns and now I will have to go and look for it! Thanks for sharing your wonderful jackets!
