Great job! I'd like to try this one for myself. Looks like it would be great for work. I'll probably shorten the slit up the back looks a little high for me even on the pattern. I really like your fabric choice too!

Your jacket looks wonderful and I really love the silk tweed you used.

I saw the pattern and fell in love with the jacket but was concerned about the proportions of the suit because I'm also shorter than the models. You did such a great job and the suit looks wonderful on you - I'm inspired now to try it myself!

Splendid choice in using silk tweed! I am inspired to cut a silk tweed project from a Vogue pattern I have been thinking about over the last year-going to do it now!!! I love how the jacket drapes at the back. Looks like you did marvelously!

My goodness, thank you for such nice comments. I just recently found It's a delight to see what the patterns look like on REAL bodies!

Wonderful ensemble! I think I have a Vogue pattern that looks similar.

Very elegant! And I love your fabric. I have this pattern too and have been looking for fabric for a while. Silk tweed seems like an ideal choice.
