I'd have been steaming about the sleeves too. Then again, you'd never know the cuff was a rescue mission.

Great looking jacket- the cuff looks like it belongs- I bet the teacher felt bad too.

This style is so pretty. I swore forever against poofy sleeves in the 80's when they were in. I so like this western/prairie style. Can't believe your $ for the fabric! I love the waist and those buttons, too. Great job!

Adding the cuff was a great idea! I agree, if you hadn't told me, I'd've thought it was supposed to be that way. Um, what was the teacher's comment when she saw that her advice had left you with ridiculously short sleeves?

Great job! I have this pattern but haven't made it yet. We do Victorian Era shooting & I had gotten it to make for that but now I am thinking that I need one for "real" life! I agree if you hadn't said about the cuff change I probably wouldn't have noticed either. Kuddos for you!

Beautiful! If you never have, you might like to check out Sense and Sensibility patterns (NAYY), she has lovely period pieces.

What a nice jacket. Even with twirling draglines, it looks great on you!

This a beautiful jacket! Feminine, classic, pretty, but not frou-frou. You did a great job choosing a style that flatters you. I like the cuffs.

Great jacket! I especially like the back with those buttons and the flaps. How interesting. And you did a fantastic job on it. Wish it hung in my closet.

Thank you all for your kind words My teacher, when she saw the sleeves, was looking kind of sheepish. Never really apologised, but did discuss cuffs with me. Needless to say I made the cuffs I wanted not her idea :-)

I love those little flaps at the back. Very flattering style, those sleeve cuffs are clever.
