Its a real pain when the fabric and pattern don't match up - but still a very nice looking jacket - what you would call a learning experience ! - thank you for the review.

Love the jacket! I have this jacket in progess too! Thanks for the information on the fabric. I was beginning to have doubts about my fabric choice; I wanted denim on one side and a silk/poly brocade on the other. But lately I've been thinking that the denim would be way too heavy and stiff and that I should change to something more like what the pattern calls for. Your information pretty much confirms that thought. I think the brocade will be OK - I am doing a test garment in a similar weight fabric first just to be sure though. Thanks again for the very helpful information!

Very nice jacket. At least it looks great! I used to do that with the buttons, too. Now I just sew each side separately, with the buttons offset from each other about 1/16".

Great review and nice looking jacket. I think we have all done that - fabric not quite suitable but great learning experience.

Useful; I find the pattern confusing - I haven't used it yet - but on the packet it says: Fabric, chiffon/ crepe de chine; contrast 1: panne velvet & charmeuse; contrast 2: lightweight tweed & wool crepe. But when you look at the cutting layout, it shows 'contrast 2' as being the one you cut the bias binding from, which must surely be the very fine chiffonny fabric, and this seems to be borne out by the amounts required: contrast 2 needing much more, due to binding. I am not impressed that the company cannot get these details right; does not inspire me to think this pattern is one I can tackle with confidence: how many more mistakes will there be? And which is the fabric which is to be interfaced (section 5 of the instructions) given the ambiguity I outline? I assume it is the chiffon. I think I shall try to produce a simplified non-reversible version, perhaps cut on the cross and with with frayed seam allowances.

I really wish I could see your jacket, but I get a "page reached in error" on all of your links. The pattern looks intriguing.
