Thanks everyone.

Your jacket is beautiful: this is one of my favorite patterns of all time: I've made it twice, but I wear as a blouse. I love the way your collar turned out: outstanding top.

That's a great looking jacket. I'm glad you did this revenue, since I just ordered the pattern. I'm wondering if I should include a dart in my jacket since I'm a C cup. I'll do a muslin and see.

You top stiching goes well w/ the embroidered fabric. That should work very well as a jacket. Shortening the collar is another example of why it's so nice to sew.

Love the fabric and your topstitching with it.

I love this - especially the coloured top stitching - it really looks very good. The jacket also looks great on you.

Looks like a real keeper. Nice fabric, thread and buttons choices.

This is a beautiful jacket - I love the fabric, variegated thread, button interaction. By the time I looked at your review all pictures were looking great! Nice job, nice review. Thx.

Wearable muslin?! Your jacket looks lovely and deserves a spot at the front of your closet :-) Did you use variegated thread for the topstitching or is it my monitor? A great success. Thank you. Sue

I fixed the pictures so they can be viewed full size now. However, the button picture is acting up and I need to check into that. My Yahoo account is new and I just finished uploading pictures to it last night, so I am still working out the bugs.

I can't see your photo either. I get a message that says I'm not authorized to access it.?

It looks pretty but cannot see the larger picture of the top

Hi, I get Yahoo! - 403 forbidden when I try to look at your main photo :-(

Cheryl...I'm not sure about the thumbnail size. As for Yahoo photos, I use it too, and you can't use the photo's Properties addresss [it changes], you need to use the address showing in your browser when you have the pic open. This is Yahoo's way of making sure their ads show [which is why it's free for us].

I don't know why the pictures are so small. If someone can tell me what I might have done wrong, I will fix it tomorrow.
