Thank you. The only reason it posted again was because I had fix my photos. I changed my address on my blogsite (that's where my photos come from) and it messed some of my photos on some of my reviews. It was going to our family's personal site. I'll have to talk to dh about putting a password on it.

How'd I miss this first time around? Your jacket looks great! I've got another on my to-do list, too. Such a great pattern....

Classy looking jean jacket! Your topstitching really sets it off. I'd love to see the bag with it.

I really like your jacket - the corduroy is a really cool way to jazz it up from the normal all denim jacket.

I'll bet your back is out from all the bending over sewing, eh? I know when I get overzealous and I hear a little voice in my head say, "You need to take a break, stop a little while" and I push on and push on... boy do I get stiff the next morning!! What a beautiful job. I like to use two threads thru the needle when topstitching too and the special needle makes so much difference. Beautiful detail.

My monitor says your jacket looks blue and tan. Love it just the same!

What professional looking results! I have the pattern but have been too intimidated to try it as I've never made anything but a toddler's sweatshirt type jacket, and that was years ago. I'm moving closer to trying it after seeing your great results.

What a beautiful job - now I know how to jazz up my next jean jacket LOL. If this was in a store as RTW we would be spending big $$$$. Thanks for such a great review

The jacket definitely looks like RTW which would cost a lot of $--you did a terrific job of contrasting colors, and your topstitching is amazing. Hope your chiropractor helped you!

The jacket looks wonderful. I am amazed at how meticulous your tracings are. I trace the lines and transfer the markings but the words are a bit to be desired. Yours looks so neat.

The olive corduroy with the black denim is great!! Your topstitching came out really well. (I finished this same pattern today in a brown stretch velveteen. It's that time of year again.)
