Great jacket - Im fairly new to this website and love your reviews as you seem to make many of the jacket patterns I love - having narrow shoulders and a larger bust I really appreciate your reviews

Lovely eye-catching jacket, and what an informative review. Sounds like their bust shaping is also retro!

Another beautiful project! Très chic! And this is a wearable muslin? None of my muslins ever end up being wearable!

Thank you! I have the fabric, the pattern, the lining ..... and now the advice! I love your version, the use of the fabric design, and the bow.

Very lovely jacket. Great idea for the bias-cut collar

I always love your work, Debra, and this lovely jacket is no exception. So inspiring. Your morphing of the two patterns was genius.

I've got this pattern and material for it in my stash and was very glad to see your version - very stylish. Can you post a picture of you wearing it?

This is a great garment! Beautiful work. Thank you very much for the bust adjustment warnings. Will have to look up both this pattern and 8164. What a great piece to have over a sheath dress!
