I can see how this has become your go-to jacket- it's just fab and so hip. And you look stunning. Thanks for this great review.

Somehow I missed this review the first time around...I must've been busy hacking up a faux furball. :) What a great coat, and a muslin at that!! It looks so comfy and I love that button!! Thanks for the Burda-coaxing, too. :)

I can see why you liked it before, but that closure really adds the right touch. Beautiful.

OK Cindy-Lou, you've done it again. You've made me "see" a pattern I passed over and covet it. We may well be the queens of the wearable muslins! I love this and will be making it as soon as I make the tunic you reviewed first!

Yes, the new button pulls this look into the forefront. Good choice. I love the jacket and am glad that you're BWOF acclimated. Look forward to many more traced treasures in the future. Excellent review, too. -Lily

Great work on your first BWOF project! I too thought it would hang like a sack but yours has style!

Lovely jacket! I have been thinking of sewing this but can't decide fabric, you have made lovely choice! Thank you for the review!

Congrats on your first BWOF! Waiting for my first issue to come since Sept. ;-( That's a really cute jacket.

I have yet to make anything from BWOF. It just sounds so painful to do all the tracing, etc. The sewing part does not bother me. I really should take the plunge. Great jacket style. Congrats on your first BWOF project.

Thanks for the nice review. This pattern has appealed to me but I was always kind of afraid it would hang like a sack because of so few pieces. but you proved that wrong....I may just have to make it after seeing your review. Maybe I will make it out of waterproofed twill to have a rain type coat for spring.

Cute jacket, BWOF patterns are my preference mostly. You'll enjoy them now you've made your first one.
