Your jacket is so beautiful - I have the pattern and now you have motivated me to use it! Thanks for the heads up on the waist seam placement - would definitely not be good place for me either as I do have more there than I want to show off!!

Wow, that is so much nicer than the pattern illustration. Kwik Sew fools me again. I had never looked at this pattern. Thanks and great project!

I agree, your jacket is really stunning and I didn't see that in the pattern illustration. The collar and cuff contrast is great as is your choice of clasp...bravo!

Your version of the jacket is very beautiful and expensive-looking!

Jane, this turned out so well and looks very nice on you--very slimming too--a winner. I love the colors on you.

I love what you did with this jacket! Much nicer, and more flattering, than the original version. Looking forward to the other versions, too!

Good call on the changes you made, esp. at the shoulder line. The result is perfect for you!

That jacket looks spectacular on you. Nobody would ever guess that there are 'round bits' underneath at hip level. I love the colours and fabric too.

Wow, a stunning jacket. I agree with everyone else that your jacket looks much nicer than those on the pattern envelope. Great Job

Very nice. I like the simple lines of this jacket. The collar is really attractive in a different colour.

Talk about a fabulous jacket and love the slimming properties. I've added it to my wish list.

SO pretty! I love your version, and I like the fit so much better than as illustrated on the pattern. Great idea, too, moving that seam up. I'm going to try that myself.

I have earmarked your excellent review for future reference - we seem to have similar body shapes so you've pretty much made me my 'wearable muslin' with this pattern!

Spectacular Jacket!!! The neckline is so flattering and fabric and colors you used are perfection. Great tips on how you lowered the horizontal seam. I certainly can't see that you have a bad body part lol!

Looks great - good for you on the pocket from Threads. I always mean to make those type of things.

Wow--you took the most ordinary looking patern and turned it into a fashionable, flattrering piece of clothing. Thanks for all the tips: wonderful looking on you. I, like another of the PR sewers, am putting this into my favorites.
