This is so beautifully constructed! I never noticed this pattern before and agree that it's a great one to have.

Wonderful looking jacket! I like the use of the contrast fabric for the facing. The topstitching is so well done. Great way to showcase all the beautiful seaming this jacket has. Great job!

Lovely! The cover stitching is a great finish and the jacket looks very high end boutique.

that looks super, you sure worked out those issues from your previous version. This has very chic anc clean lines. It looks great with that tank too.

Woo hoo! What a success. Even after sewing for many years I think your skills continue to advance. I love the coverstitch/topstitch detail! The lines of this jacket make it so interesting It's calling to me again. This will be a garment you'll wear often.
