Thanks all for the beautiful compliments. Although it was a challenge, I'm so glad I finished it. So glad that I didn't put buttons on it However, I just took a closer look at my machine and finally found the auto-buttonhole - so off to find six buttons. Have a Happy Holiday All.

I think you must do more than "really like it" - this is wonderful and for your first jacket hats off to you! Great work and sewing a jacket with fabric that has spandex is not the easiest!!

I like your jacket you did a great job making it. Have added it to my list of 'to do's'. Did you make your pants? I really like the style and would love to know what pattern it is if so. Thanks

Your jacket looks really good on you. I know what you mean about all those pieces - I find I have to be extra careful with labeling on those projects if I don't want to end up scratching my head :-).. But for the next time, you might consider something else. Your fabric looks good once you're done - but any sort of wool would be much easier to work with. Sticks together, presses easily, stretches a bit and eases well.. Get my drift? Nobody's first jackets should be from anything else.

You did a great job on your first jacket. You certainly did not pick an easy one and it is apparent that you worked very hard to make it successful. Congrats to you for your success and now you can tackle even more.

Very nice jacket! The only way to learn is to push our sewing limits and obviously it worked well for you.

Thanks Again for the beautiful compliments. I definitely look forward to make another jacket and taking Fuzzygalores suggestion about using wool.
