What a fantastic jacket. That came out wonderfully. Homemade is definitely NOT what people are going to think when looking at it.

Wonderful jacket! I totally hear you on the hardware problem... I know there were stores in NYC with huge selections of this kind of thing, but you often have to buy dozens or hundreds, and I'm not sure if they ship. I still think the jacket looks great, though.

I'm in a motorcycle jacket frenzy lately so I'm just loving this version. Great color choice and I really love the belt and studs.

Super jacket I can hardly believe you made yourself!

What a great jacket. You need to wear this color more..............looks really wonderful on you! I see what you mean about the belt. I agree that a stiffer interfacing and less hardware weight would probably solve the problem. Thankfully you have a bit of extra fabric. (Yes, and I am very envious!!)

This is very cute! I've seen many RTW jackets with droopy belts as well . Wear this with pride!

Super jacket! If you remake the belt, could reduce the weight by having fewer grommet holes, just maybe 2 or 3 and/or eliminate the hardware for the holes, do by hand or machine-bound holes. Just an idea. Overall, it looks great!

A wonderful, versatile jacket, great for office or play. I know what you mean about finding the right fittings. It is so impossible, especially when you get an idea of what you want. Yours turned out really well though.

Seriously, this does not look in any way homemade. I am super jealous of this fly jacket, and I love the color.

I think this is just fantastic and really great review too! I don't get homemade at all out of this with the hardware but understand when you are working on it you have a critical eye of all details so don't blame you. Fantastic job, this is a great style and pattern so it's wonderful you have made it several times.

I love the style of this jacket, too bad it's OOP. You did a great job and the hardware looks fine to me.

Great jacket! I really like the brass hardware you chose.

Really cute jacket. The hardware actually looks great from your pictures. But I know how hard it is to find eyelets/buckles/snaps all to match :(( Maybe another belt loop up front to avoid it drooping? I really think it looks very chic though. and very up to the minute .
