Nancy, THANK you for your review of this jacket. I just saw this pattern on the screen and glad to revisit your gorgeous jacket and review. I am still on my quest to find THE jacket. RTW does not do it for me anymore. I just added this to my list.

thanks for the review on this jacket - your links were helpful too. I absolutely love the lines on this jacket. I can understand why it has become your TNT.

Wonderful jacket. I think you made great choice opting for one button only. It makes it look very elegant and stylish.

Nancy, your review is just as great as this beautiful jacket. You demonstrated why we make beautiful clothes but also to learn new techniques and stretch our abilities. Bravo.

Thank you for the review's thoroughness and specificity. And for the links to the shoulder pads, etc. The jacket is beautiful and you are right to be proud and excited about perfecting it.

Nancy, Thanks so much for this thorough review!!! I have this pattern and have put off making it--it seemed slightly 'dated' to me. But now it is DEFINITELY going on my 'to sew' list. I love the one button look that you created. I like that you share the sources for all the materials that you have used in your projects. I will use your review and hints as I sew! You are a great role model as you make the pattern several times until you have the techniques down perfectly. I wouldn't think to do that. So Helpful! Thanks again! Carla

Thank you all for your very generous compliments. I think this is a great basic pattern and well worth investing in even if you've never sewn a jacket before.
