I am just now cutting our a muslin for this jacket. Thanks for the head's up on the sleeve cap and the angled seams.

Super jacket! As for the variations in color, well, it looks like RTW, totally!

The denim looks great. I bet it will even look better as you continue to wash it over time.

Wow, Lisa this is a real winner! I was out of the country when you first posted the review, so I'm really glad you did a 2nd version. I love the pattern, it certainly goes on the old wish list. I love both versions!

I love both of these! The denim looks good with the double top stitching. I would have never thought to use denim with this but I bet that it fits you coir purpse perfectly. Yo sound just like me digging fabric out of the attic. I bet your friends say "why don't you just go out and buy one" we seamstresses know that a trusted pattern with good fabric is so much more perfect. Sensational!

I missed your first review, but great job on both jackets. I LOVE your denim version. Excellent work on the topstitiching.

Lisa, that's one chic jacket - terrific save on the collar - a blind man'd love to see it, as my grandmother used to say, :-) Very nice work. Thanks for the review.

Wow, Thanks ladies! I'll come re read the comments on days when I screw up a bunch of stuff (like sewing collars backwards...) Kathryn, I know you've got to have something yummy to sew this up in...can't wait to see your results! BTW, Shannon Gifford posted on another sewing group message board that this jacket is an Armani knock ;)

It looks great. The back view adds a lot to this jacket. As usual, you have a great review.

Lisa - beautiful jacket! Thanks for the thorough review. I can relate to your late night sewing woes!

Very nice outfit. I really love the look of this jacket. I added to my wish list but think I will need extra time to work on something like this and right now I am into immediate gratification. Excellent review.

This pattern has such great style! I especially like the back view! I just added this one and the Claire Schaeffer pants pattern to my "I need these patterns" list.

Lisa, thank you for the great review! I have this pattern "on deck" for a project, and you have saved me HOURS of work and potential boo-boos. I think the jacket looks wonderful on you. Enjoy wearing it!

Well your picture and review have put this pattern on my shopping list. I too love the back details. Good job, Lisa. Enjoy wearing it. Julie

What a great summer jacket. Very nice.

Very nicely done.

Wow, Lisa, I love that jacket. Your comment about lots of seams w/lots of opportunities for fit make me think this is just the pattern for me. Thanks for this review.

Very nice summer jacket. It is too bad, though, about not having simpler pattern pieces for the lining.
