I always check out the coat and jacket reviews on PR, always curious about how they set zippers. :) I keep meaning to do one specifically for this type jacket.

I love your jacket! It looks great on you. Very nice touch lining it with fleece. Well done :)

AH, Karen didn't go see the blog :-). Her loss.. Love the jacket, and thanks for posting all those back details, I'm always frustrated the Burda site doesn't do backs. You'll be warm, cozy, and very very cute :-).

Definitely better than the Burda model (and more dressed!) I'm impressed - it's hard to visualize this jacket while looking at the silly silver one in the magazine, but I like yours way better.

Awesome jacket! I would never even attempt something like this ...yet! I'm so impressed.

Your lining idea is great - I'm sure you are going to get lots of wear out of this jacket.

This is so chic but practical in the fabrics you chose - nice job!

Your jacket looks so smart, even in "workhorse" fabric. I love all the details in the pattern and how beautifully you have made this jacket. Thank you for your review.

Beautiful coat. Great job on all that topstitching. I like yours much better than the magazine version. You made us see how this pattern can be used for something you wear in daily life. Thanks.

I really enjoy the reviews you post and your style. Thanks again for a great project!
Peacock Chic said... (6/18/08 1:17 AM) Reply I feel like a jacket stalker but I have to put a comment here too as well as on your blog. Love it and will definitely make it. I even looked up the fabric you used as I have never seen it before. I was also just talking about only Northface having jackets and me wanting something a little more stylish. This could be IT! Great job.
