What a GREAT picture of you, made all the more so in this beautiful peach jacket. It fits you PERFECTLY, and that is most definitely YOUR COLOR. :o) I have a feeling you WILL find a way to use this pattern again, and why not? I love all of your versions so far!

I have this pattern b/c I like the way it looks on the envelope. But I can't believe how many different things you have made from it - and they are all things I would wear...a LOT! This is definitely moving up on my "to do" list. You are so adorable in this jacket with your smile!! How much did you move the princess seams in? And what is the "3/4" BB" adjustment? I need some similar adjustments that you made - especially in the FBA and lowering the bust point.

This color looks great on you. Adding the piping was such a great idea. I bet you think of another jacket to make with this pattern. So nice when all the alterations are already done and you can get right to the fun part - the sewing!

Great jacket! The zipper ripple is barely noticeable, probably would not have been noticeable at all had you not called it to our attention.

o3b, thanks for the kind comments regarding this project. I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not sure about some of the alterations. I usually write alterations on the pattern piece. However, I traced, adjusted and retraced again until I'm not sure about some of the alteration amounts. The BB adjustment was slashing the back from shoulder to hem. I did a regular FBA on the side piece, and lowered the BP by cutting a "box" around the bust "point" and lowering that piece and filling in the gap above with tissue. HTH

I love this jacket on you, and am really impressed with where you've taken this pattern. I have overlooked this in the book, but seeing all of your versions I feel inspired to add it to my pattern collection.
