Thank you for the review. I think the jacket looks great on you. I love the pink stitching.

I think that the jacket looks better on you - you give it more shape (or it moves with you nicely)! Beautiful jacket. Thanks for the great review!

Your jacket is beautiful on you, you did a fantastic job . You did a great a job of overcoming all the obstacles too.

Great topstitching. It certainly doesn't look bad on you, although I know exactly what you mean about needing a garment with a defined waist.

This jacket begs for a form fitting skirt with a flippy hemline. I love the grey wool/hot pink combo, too. Nice job, it looks very professional.

Wow, your jacket turned out great! Definitely better than the pattern illustration. You did a wonderful job on this.

You did a beautiful job, Julie, and I think you'll come to like this on you the more you wear it. Your workmanship is impeccable as alway! Say hi to the NoVA ASG group for me! Johanna

I like your jacket on you and your dressform. The pink topstitching sets off the entire jacket. I am working on the Prim and Proper jacket, finding the sleeves very tight.

Your jacket is just lovely and looks great on you too BTW. I adore grey-pink combos. I also got stuck with my Mongolian jacket re how to finish-sew sleeve lining to jacket lining delema as my cuffs were done first too. Like the HongKong finish idea. Glad you perservered so next one will be "easy" :)

I really like your jacket. I think it looks great on you. I am sorry you had to struggle so much - and not in a good "hey, I am learning something new type way". While I can live with mis-matched marks, I get very irritated by un-trued seams. It is an unnecessary drafting correction I shouldn't have to make. Very helpful review, thank you for taking time with it.

This looks fabulous on you - not better on your dressform. I love the contrast stitching detail. Thank you for the very detailed review.

I'm sorry this pattern had so many errors - but - you certainly overcame them. This is beautiful and I love the hot pink topstitching technique

It really does look fantastic...Just got this pattern in the mail today so I am looking forward to referencing your (and other) reviews for this one. Thanks for the detail!

Love the jacket on you.. the gray wool with the pink top stitching is great.

I think the jacket looks very nice on you , and you did a beautiful job on the topstitching.

Thanks for your helpful review. I agree that it looks good on both you and your dressform.

You ran into the exact same problems I did. Jacket looks great though.

Well, its reassuring to know that I'm not just losing my mind regarding the drafting flaws I've found on these patterns. I think your top looks very good - - I like it better on you than on your form actually. Thank you so much for this very helpful review.

What an excellent, detailed review. I love the way you did the contrast topstitching and trim. The jacket looks great on you -- it is a very good length.

Julie, it looks great (both on you and the dressform)! Excellent review.
