Your picture links are now defunct. I plan to make this shortly, and will keep the collar info in mind.

Peggy.. Love the review and your jacket. I bought this fabric yesterday at Textile Fabrics. I have wanted it every since I first read your review. How did you pretreat the fabric? I'm making Louise Cutting's By Popular Demand and hope to wash it.

Peggy, I love your jacket - very Chico's (my shorthand for wearable, attractive, practical but elegant.) The fabric is really great.

Peggy, congratulations on a beautiful job! I loved the snf class, too. Hope to post my review soon (got to finish sewing first). The beautiful photos make me want to try this pattern with snf.

Lalana - I added to the width of the collar. When you get your pattern, you will see the part that folds down behind your neck is very narrow. I used one of the thicker fabrics listed is why I added to it. Glenda - FBA is 'full bust adjustment". This pattern is drafted for a "B" and I am a D. Thanks for the nice comments! This was a fun jacket to make.

Cute jacket. But what is FBA?

Very nice jacket. I like how you did the lining and bound the edges. It looks very professional.

Beautiful jacket. I was in the class too and just finished my jacket (review to be posted soon). Just looked at your other reviews - you have some lovely fabrics in your stash.

Peggy: Your jacket looks lovely. I took the snf class too, but have a few more steps to finish. I was planning to use the Tuxedo jacket for my next project, so I enjoyed your review. I too like LH patterns, but hate unlined jackets, so snf is a great solution. When you say you added to the collar, you mean width, right?

Your jacket is gorgeous! I'm convinced! I have to take Shannon's jacket soon as I complete her muslin fit class! First things first!

Peggy, your jacket is beautiful. You did a wonderful job. I am still working on mine.

Thanks everyone. Yes, I loved this class. I should have explained SNF - it is a method of lining a jacket as you go rather than inserting a whole separate lining. Lots of us just finished a class Shannon Gifford taught. I'm waiting to see all the other jackets!

Simple but elegant jacket. It is going to look great for many different kinds of occasions. I have been considering this one; I may have to give in.

I am glad to see your jacket from SNF. I am still working on mine. Your jacket looks great. This jacket is my next planned one and I plan to use the SNF method as you did. Thanks for showing the binding.

Peggy, you did a great job with your jacket. Wasn't the class great? Based on your review, the Tuxedo Jacket is going to be my next snf jacket. Congratulations on a great jacket!

Peggy, I made the same jacket in Shannon's class. Your fabric is lovely and the technique is great! I haven'nt mastered the computer-photo thing so I can't post my picture. I need a class in that. LOL

Thanks for your review of this jacket, Peggy. Sounds like I really need to find out more about the stitch and flip technique. Your jacket looks wonderful, inside and out.

Lovely jacket and the inside looks great too. Congrats for the first review from this class -- is there a prize? ;-) Hope to finish my SNF jacket soon!

Thanks for this review, Peggy. Your jacket is beautiful! Like you, I really love the SNF technique for jackets & am planning to make another as soon as I finish the black pants I'm working on. Gotta get those done, need them really bad!

Wowza! Terrific jacket. That technique is great, isn't it?
