Thanks, Ann. Given what you said, the double collar might work with a wool crepe or other soft wool. But that can wait till fall!

Very striking - looks great with the navy linen ensemble.

Like others, I purchased the Plaza Jacket pattern from Sewing Workshop because of your review. This Vogue pattern is certainly a beautiful alternative.

Another winner! I love your jacket! I purchased this pattern recently because of the similar lines to the Plaza jacket. It really showcases a beautiful fabric, doesn't it? Thanks for your timely review.

Very cute pattern showcasing the fabric, Ann! What a wonderful job you did. The whole ensemble just sizzles.

Diane, I can't see any reason why not except it might add extra bulk in the front. If you have a thin fabric it shouldn't matter. The front is self lined so in the case of my fabric it would not work well.

Very striking, like all your clothes. I have this pattern in my stash and was thinking of making it with two collared fronts similar to making the Japonesque with 2 right fronts. Do you think this would work and look good?

Very striking, dramatic--looking jacket. It is indeed a perfect style for a luxurious fabric like this.

Everything you make looks lovely and this is no exception, it's gorgeous!

What a pretty jacket! Unusual style, and I like that fabric very much.

How lovely. I bought this patterns recently because I thought it would be a good looking variation on the 'bog' coat. I wanted something that looked similar to the Plaza Jacket from SW, that you've reviewed once or twice. So I'm doubly glad for your review!!

I love your jacket -- color and style. How would this work for a slightly stiffer fabric? Just look more kimono-ish? I need to look more carefully at Joann's; if they are going to start carrying interesting fabrics, I need to 'encourage' them.
