Well, "winging it" obviously worked. Beautiful jacket and stunning fit. That's a very classy outfit.

Great jacket and useful review.
9/23/06 2:34 PM
What a beautiful jacket! You look wonderful in it. Love the choices you made for fabric & buttons. Thank you for this very helpful review.
9/23/06 2:40 PM
Very professional looking and excellent fit! The longer fitted jacket style is one that I don't remember seeing too many of on PR, and therefore it makes your entry a valuable example of a tailored longer jacket with great styling details. You look so great in it that it would seem like you could make this one of your tried and true favorites, perhaps with variations for different looks.

Sarah, this is the most professional looking garment I have seen on this site. WOW!
9/23/06 2:45 PM

Very professional jacket. Lucky you to get such a great fit with so few alterations. Your sewing skills got a challenge, but the results were worth it.

It fits you perfectly. A major accomplishment. Don't be so hard on yourself, you did a great job and it looks better than rtw.

This is stunning. You did a beautiful job!! Nancy's jacket book is wonderful. Looks like you have your basic TNT jacket pattern.
9/23/06 5:21 PM
Beautiful jacket! Very professional looking with designer details. This is definitely one of the most attractive garments I've seen reviewed on PR! Thanks for a very informative review.
9/23/06 6:07 PM
Congratulations, Sarah. This is a beautifully tailored and very flattering jacket that rivals anything at Neiman's or Saks. I bet Nancy Ericsson would be thrilled with your resullts. And you've inspired me to go ahead and attempt 1945c as my next jacket project. Thank you for your review.

Sarah - Echoing all the other comments here, your jacket is gorgeous. You did a good job with the fit and the construction. The length looks great on you, too.
9/23/06 6:48 PM
Stressful as it was, you have a very lovely jacket as a result. Kudos! And do make it again because it is quite a stunner!
9/23/06 7:04 PM

Beautiful jacket. Very sleek!

"But the end result was fine"????????? Just a Gorgeous jacket, and it fits you like a glove! "Course it helps that you're so thin.
9/24/06 1:38 AM
Absolutely stunning! Your jacket looks very professional and fits perfectly. Great job!
9/24/06 5:11 AM
Your jacket is gorgeous. I have some beautiful wool stored in a cedar chest that I picked up on a trip to NYC a couple of years ago. I have been saving it for the "perfect" pattern. Your review has just showed me that pattern. That jacket looks absolutely beautiful on you. You are an inspiration. Thanks for the wonderful review.
9/24/06 6:56 AM
What a great review, so very informative. Thank you. Your jacket is stunning. It fits you very well. I love the whole look of it and it is flattering on you. The buttons are truly lovely. What nice service from Sawyer Brooks.
9/24/06 7:40 AM
Cannot believe you have not done a tailored jacket before - this is such a WOW!! Absolutely positive there is nothing in RTW that could match. Congrats on a job perfectly executed and thanks for such a helpful review.

I am so impressed! Your jacket looks perfect to me. Great job! Now I want to run upstairs and start making a wool blazer!

Beautiful, sleek jacket that fits you like a glove. Congratulations on such a successful project.
9/24/06 10:10 AM
Amazing--you can come sew for me anytime--definitely looks better than RTW, and isn't Sawyer Brook wonderful for their matching service? This outfit can go anywhere and be worn with anything, terrific wardrobe builder.

Beautiful fit! Wonderfu job of construction! Judging from the picture I wouldn't change anything in your next version. I looks marvelous on you.
9/24/06 11:31 AM
Love, love, love your jacket. Looks very smart on you. Excellent job.
9/24/06 12:15 PM
I never tried that pattern for the same reason, trying to figure out the size by measuring a garment instead of me. If you were winging it and that's Walmart fabric, You have some talent!
