This is a very beautiful jacket. You have made it your own. Looking forward to seeing the matching pants and skirt.

Congratulations on finishing it well! It looks wonderful, and you have a beautifully made jacket. (BTW, your friend who doesn't care to pay you for the jacket should go buy herself RTW.)

Thank YOU for this wonderful and very helpful review - your jacket is stunning to say the least, I won't be making it as my figure does not support such a close fit but now any member of PR who wants to do so will have your excellent review to help them!! Bythe way if the photo is you without make-up I wonder why you bother - you are beautiful without

Thanks for the great review! I'm sure it will be very helpful to anyone who wants to sew this pattern. PS I wouldn't make one for your friend either! I'm sure she doesn't appreciate how much work it would be.

Wow. You really beat that pattern into submission. Your jacket looks beautifully constructed and shaped. The binding/piping is perfect.

What a great jacket and a great review! I think you need to upgrade your personal rating, this was difficult! I love your new category: "Are you looking for a challenge?" You wrestled this one to the ground and you won! Thanks for a really precise and entertaining review.

Gorgeous Jacket and thanks for your story and review.

Fabulous review and I love the look of your jacket. Your precise sewing pays off again! Would love to see you wearing this, but perhaps we have to wait until you have finished the skirt?

Marvelous jacket! Nice work!

Enchanting review. Great results.
Mahler said... (1/20/08 12:12 PM) Reply
To answer Cindyann, I do not suggest preshrunk wool because the tucks are done through all tickness of fabric. This means that tucks are done after sewing the facing. With the binding at the tip, that does not allow great flexibility and with 4 layers of fabric you would end up with big unconfortable tucks around your neck. I think this will not be good.

I really like that jacket and love the interesting neckline. It's really chic. Just wondering why you suggest no preshrunk wool for this coat? Great review.

What a well-written Review!! You look FABULOUS in your jacket, too, eh!! Do you feel extra-proud of yourself for your efforts & perseverence?
Mary Stiefer said... (1/20/08 11:44 AM) Reply
Beautifully done. Your persistence has paid off.

Your jacket is lovely, Mahler! ( I so enjoy seeing your garments--colors, styles, workmanship . . . ) your phrase "giving birth" to the jacket--some projects are almost like a pregnancy and a labor--last as long, and with pains! Thanks for all the information.
