I have looked at this pattern and really liked the shaping in the jacket. I will pick it up at the next pattern sale. The hints on the use of extra interfacing are helpful. Thanks for another informative review.

Very beautiful jacket, Debra, and the fabric sings your tune most melodically. Your highly instructive and explanatory review has made it possible for anyone to now make it this lovely jacket to perfection. How giving you are! -Lily

What a wonderful and detailed review--we need a category for superlative reviews like yours! Fabulous jacket/top; I, too, have admired this pattern and considered it. Vogue should pay you for making it easier for everyone...

I agree with Aunt Saidee that your review is like a mini sewing lesson and deserves a special category all its own. Your clothes are so wonderfully distinctive, Debra; I can always recognize your work from the picture without even reading the name underneath :-) Thank you for making this pattern a breeze for the rest of us to sew.

I love how you've matched the pattern in this jacket! And even though I own this pattern, your choice of fabric took it to an entirely new level! Great job as usual!

Fabulous jacket - and I think it is just the jacket I've been looking for! Thank you for all the "tips" - you are so wonderful to share your knowlege so freely with us here at PR! :)

WOWzer!Make my day!You told your secret to matching prints! I will use this when it is important to match the seam/fronts..Please copy this to tips/techinques so we can find it when searching for this needed item of "Matching Prints at Seams/Fronts", or what you think best? I wish I had your patience/skill, or persistence? The print is very up-to-date, and Designerish(?sp). Cooool!!

Great review as usual. What a pretty fabric, and you chose a good pattern to display it. The stitching to keep the pleats in place is a wonderful idea--too bad the pattern doesn't suggest it.
