Wow, this is a really wonderful jacket. I am seriously impressed with your topstitching, lining and fitting skills. This is perfect. Well done. What a wonderful idea to use the sloper to get the fit just so.

That looks perfect. You did a great job with those fitting issues, and that fabric is a wonderful, unexpected twist.

Beautiful work! I love your fabric choice. You are so clever with the fusible interfacing and organza - what a great idea. It sounds like your sloper is serving you well.

This is a fabulous jacket. I admire your skills in drafting your own sloper and adapting other patterns to it. Great job!

How lovely! Your fitting is superb and your construction is impeccable. I've been mulling over a double princess seam jacket and you're encouraging me. I'll use my Pattern Master Boutique 4 sloper and draft the jacket in that. Your "instructions" will be very helpful. Thank you.

Beautiful. Looks very "high-end boutique". Thanks for the organza / fusible interfacing idea!

Love the jacket -- the crinkly fabric, the fit. Everything. Your bound buttonholes are perfect. No way you're an intermediate. If that is true, I'm a rank beginner!

Splendid fit. Interesting comments about Marfy's subtle shaping. It shows in the way the jacket has just the right amount of flare. Lovely work.

I'll just have to ''ditto'' all above comments - your jacket is beautiful.

Yeah, I think it's time to move on up to Advanced. You've sure earned it, this jacket looks just PERFECT!

Definitely Advanced as I understand Marfy has no instructions with their patterns. Thanks for the organza tip!

Absolutely stunning jacket. The fit is PERFECT! I just love everything about this jacket, from the fabric and the color to the impeccable topstitching. And those bound buttonholes are super-professional. Thanks for the silk organza / fusible interfacint tip. Great idea. Agree with the other posters, you are definitely Advance.
