That is so pretty and wonderful that you made it your way. I would love one of these sheer things. I am glad to know that it can look so nice on a petite.

Very attractive jacket and so versatile. I hesitate to try anything that sheer for the reasons you mentioned, but maybe one day . . . . .

This is so attractive in a sheer. I would be interested in what fabric you used for the "work" version also.

How did you change the drape in front? I'm also petite and would like to make this jacket.

A wonderful looking coverup and very flattering.

K_sew, this one is my work version which I wear with various colored tanks. I teach junior high and while I like to wear sporty clothes, I also don't want everything visible as I bend, twist and lean over tables. :-) I sewed another version in a black and white floral which is more sophisticated. Janice, altering the drape was pretty easy. I altered the pattern pieces of the other four panels by shortening then by approx. 1/3rd. I tried to alter the drape pattern piece but it wasn't very obvious as it is an irregularly shaped triangle. So, I just cut it out as the regular pattern size, basted it to the four panels (which were sewn together first), and then cut the drape at an angle to match the panel angle. No math, no real measuring...just used a ruler and pencil and scissors. Who would know that I didn't use a pattern? As long as the angles match, then the hems will match and all is good. :-)

Very nice top. I like your floaty material. Thanks for your review.

Beautiful top. It looks perfect on you. You handled the fabric so well - I have yet to take on such a difficult fabric.

Really nice! I have this pattern in my stash and now that I've seen it for real, I think I'm going to have to try it.

New sewing notion: the serenity prayer. Love the results, what a nice idea to make the sheer jacket.
