I had always admired this pattern as I browsed through the pattern book. When I finally decided to buy it, it was discontinued. I found it on Ebay and used my 15 cent per yard Goodwill fabric to try it out. It turned out great and the only change I would make the next time around would be to shorten the sleeves about 1/2 inch. There are lots of details and topstitching which are a little time consuming, but easy. The jacket is unlined so I flat-felled every seam that I possibly could and encased the armseye seams and the facings with bias binding. I didn't want to see even a serged seam when I looked at the inside. I will definitely use this pattern again. I can't imagine why it was discontinued. It is one of those timeless, classic patterns that never really go out of style.
