Thanks everyone! Linda L, yes, the triangular insets are cut on the bias - I bet this would be neat in a stripe or something. I fused the whole jacket with So Sheer, in part because I didn't want any weirdness from the bias panels given that the wool crepe is a relatively loose weave.

Beautiful job. This pattern has been languishing in my stash for a year now. Time to make it up. Thanks for a helpful review.

Everytime I see your name in the list of reviews, I know I'm most likely going to see a great looking (and usually unique) jacket. And that's exactly what I got this time, too. I always enjoy seeing what you're doing. Thank you for taking the time to share!

Nikki, your jacket is smashing! I love the lines & it looks just wonderful on you! I'm still plodding along at the tail-end of the class but begining to see some real progress! Your success encourages me to keep on truckin'.

Nice job on the jacket! I like the shape of the closing, reminds me of Armani's suits.

This jacket looks very faminine and flattering on you. I'm a sucker for taylored garments and I think this is a pattern I need to add to my collection. I'll be refering to your review when I go to make it up. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats, Nikki. Nice jacket, great color. And this does look like a flattering style; I might have to consider it. Love the design lines.

Great color and shape on you, Nikki. The trim fit is really flattering. Love the triangular inset in the back and your choice of buttons.

Nikki, lovely jacket and color. And those beautiful seaming lines are great. It's encouraging ot know, also, that the back triangle wasn't too hard. I think I'd like view B also. My biggest part is right where A cuts across so the open front just points to my large high hip. I believe view B would be a better proportion on me.

Glad to read your review. Saw this made up in Stitches magazine and purchased the pattern. Looks very good on you. The pattern calls for back insert and front to be on bias, did that create any problems for you?

The triangular insets and shape of this jacket are extremely flattering to your figure. Even if you don't make this one again, I think you have found a shape that works for you.

I just love the inverted triangle on the back! The teal colour is fabulous on you but understandably hard to match. Covered buttons are always an option, I guess, if you don't mind the way they handle.

This is beautiful and makes it quite obvious that you are an advanced sewer. The fact that you continue to take classes like the Speed Tailoring is wonderful.

Good one, Nikki. I completely overlooked the great lines in this design until I saw your version. Beautiful color, too.

Love that color, Nikki. The back lines make your waist look so tiny, woohooo. Nice! Great Pattern.
