Annette, you've done a superb job with this jacket! It is absolutely gorgeous! I always love the different accents you add to your sewing to give each garment a really individual look. You are a very creative sewist! Once again, your review is fantastic and so wonderfully detailed and helpful. Great work!

I too like this version. At first glance I thought the ruffle was probably one of those plaid taffeta's, was really surprised to hear that it is a flannel. It lays really nicely. I like the button loops underneath and think they probably will make the closure more secure. What a great idea to make the sleeves on the bias.

Annette, please stop this "gorgeousness". I may have to come out there and steal this one!! That double crepe really made a spectacular jacket! I want it, I need it! Annette

Love the vibrant red and the stunning style of this jacket, Annette! I also adore either collar on you! So versatile!

Nice work! I'm a sucker for red jackets. Every woman needs at least one, right?

Wonderful review and it looks so professional. Love the color red!

Reading your exquisite review is like following the cogitations of a Jacket Genius. Coco Chanel had nothing on you ... well, maybe she would have sewn the flannel ruffle right side up the first time. The jacket itself? I'm deeply in covetous love with it. Marjenann and I come from the same general area; maybe we could carpool on a joint heist and set up a shared custody arrangement. Brava, Annette! I bow to Greatness. -Lily

Your jacket looks great! What a wonderful review full of helpful tips including new fitting standards. "Your jacket looks wonderful, BUT can you play pool in it?" :D

Oh, those ruffles are gorgeous. I'm going to do that sometime (or try to be first to steal this beautiful jacket from you before the other two ladies do!). Very helpful review.

Gorgeous jacket! I love the leather toggles!

HeyJane said...
Amazing review. I will be shamelessly copying your ruffling ideas for a vogue 7975. Your coat is absolutely beautiful.

You look great in this Annette! Great review, as usual....nicely done details - you know what to use & where to spice up any are so very creative! ;) T-E-R-R-I-F-I-C !

I like the way you added your own spin to this jacket. Great colour and like the toggles.

Great jacket and wonderful review. Your Flickr album is great too! Thanks

Your jacket looks gorgeous, and this is a great, very helpful review. I was most interested to read about your sleeve heading, with your clear pictures, as I have just eased a jacket sleeve with a bias strip, then basted in separate headings, following the instructions in a jacket making book, in which the author is not nearly as good at explanations. Your one step process looks much easier, and I will try it next time. Thank you

Another great review and jacket. I especially like the ruffle.

I love brown and red, too, and your jacket is exceptional. The ruffle and toggle really make it unique and designer-esque! Thanks for the detailed review - very informative.

I love the red and brown together. Another winning jacket!!!

Okay, you are now officially my Jacket Hero. So meticulous, so sublime... Your review is a "How To Make A Jacket, A-Z, That Will Make Heads Turn".

Lovely jacket and lively colour. Beautiful execution tho' perhaps not the toggles for me.

Lucy in Virginia said...
Wow! Your jacket is beautiful! Love the plaid trim and toggles. Great review. I wouldn't have given this one a second look from the picture on the envelope, but your right the back details are very interesting. Lesson: Always look at the line drawing, too!

Your modifications, plus the crepe fabric (as opposed to the misguided gabardine they used in the photo) make this jacket fabulous! You are a genius.
