Still stunning! I'm looking for this pattern and your review came up in a google search, I'll bet the envelope picture is nowhere near as beautiful.

I have the same fabric from Mekong and was considering this jacket for it. I have a different red from there and a different black multi, so we would still have unique garments. Thanks for the encouraging review.

What a beautiful gift - great use of fabric, with the large print and placement of the red flowers. ~Linda (redsquid)

I love your interpretation of this jacket. The red trim and slanted pockets really create a flattering look.

This jacket is supposed to meet at CF with no overlap and close with hidden hooks/eyes or frogs. One view has a tie closure. All of the views seem to close at the waist with the jacket spreading open below that point at CF.

You changed the look of this jacket so much with your fabric choices. It's lovely. This pattern sounds like a keeper.

Love how this looks. It appears to have no closure though so I wondered if you just left off the buttons or is that the pattern?

I have never been good at saving the best until last so I always open the pictures for the reviews from the front page. My initial reaction when you popped up was, "That is just so good!" You did a wonderful job combining fabrics, with shape, and details.

Great pattern, I love the versatitlity of all the looks presented on the envelope. Your version is very nice, and shows off the silhouette well.
