I love your save on the lining. Everything looks great. And, lucky you with those thrift store fabrics!

I say always get the boots, the outfit will come. `-) I love the way your jacket turned out--that pattern really caught my eye and it is at the back of my head for a really fun piece.

I recently finished this jacket and just love the pattern. Don't tell anyone, but I think yours looks better on you than mine does on me... :)

fuzzygalore, I rated it difficult because of all of the long darts that shape the pleats, the point in the middle of the yoke in the back that has to be perfect to look good and also the collor was difficult, it has a stand and is then sewn on like a lapel type collar. The jacket took me a lot longer than I would have anticipated that it would. Each sleeve has three pieces also that is how the pleat is made in the sleeves and also just pressing the darts so that they made nice little unpressed pleats.

this rocks, I love it, it looks so vintage but so trendy, you did an awesome job

Why did you rate this difficult? I get the impression it was because you had to jiggle the fabric and piece the lining, just wanted to check whether it was the pattern that had anything unusually tricky :-). Fabulous results in any case, good fabric always pays doesn't it?

You've got good results with this jacket. I made a muslin and it didn't look good on me. But on you this is a great jacket. Like your buttons.

Great outfit! The seaming in the back is cool. Very nice.

Thanks for this review - this pattern is sitting with its fabric just waiting to be cut out. Now I know it has to move up the list. Beautiful fabric - don't you love thrift stores sometimes? Can't believe someone got rid of it, but good for you for finding it and doing such a beautiful job making it up.
