You are brave to try point with your material. They look like they came out nice. The covered buttons are a classy touch.

Very pretty. Will you be reviewing the dress as well? It looks like a really nice pattern.

It has been a little while since I made this, a few months, I did have a little trouble with the dress, but right now can't remember whether it was me or the instructions. It could have been both! Sometimes instructions are pretty vague and I know since this was my first time using the slippery material with the dress and doing the princess seams, I struggled a little. I don't have a good picture of the dress, but it did turn out just like the picture looked. I also could have used a size bigger in the dress. I used my measurements but the princess fit is tighter than I like to wear my clothes. I do think it is a good pattern and you can come up with some real nice dress, jacket combinations with it.

Very nice job on your jacket - the covered buttons make it very RTW.

Sounds like in addition to a nice jacket, you have a nice outfit. I wonder if this would look good in linen. ? ?
