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!

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?

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

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.

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

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

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
