I, too, thought this pattern was too boxy, but it doesn't look boxy at all. It looks great! Thanks for this great review!

Looks great, HeathersMom! I always love how you include RTW pics that match the patterns you make.

Thankyou fuzzygalore for the 'walking ease' tip, I looked it up and I think it's going to become one of my standard jacket alterations for a full tummy.

Very cute jacket, although it's true you might enjoy wearing it more in a softer fabric like a light wool. It seems to hang open in a wedge a lot - how about adding what Sandra Betzina calls 'walking ease', a wedge of fabric along the front that gives the illusion of hanging straight?

Enabler :) I've been resisting this pattern because I thought it may be too boxy. It looks great! I might have to buy the pattern now...

That looks way better on you than on the pattern jacket.
