It does not look cheap in the pictures.

Re Becca said...
I don't think that it looks cheap either. From here it just looks like you got a good deal on a nice jacket. I think that the sewn buttonholes look fine as well. The fabric lays well and apears to have pressed well.

I have been looking at this pattern. I like it a lot - it has a flattering style.

The jacket is lovely and you look great in it. You've done a nice job! You know, other people hardly ever see the "flaws" we see in our sewing. Most people wouldn't even look twice at a buttonhole, for instance. (By the way, yours look just fine from where I'm sitting)

Very chic, nice all around.

Lovely jacket. The collar suits you.

Karla Kizer said...
I think it looks great - and that McCalls would be wise to substitute your version for theirs on the pattern envelope. Good job!

Dr. Alice, you must be thrilled with your jacket, it looks absolutely beautiful and the fabric not at all 'cheap'. I think some hand stitching around the collar, the way you see in high-end menswear would also look good.

I agree wtih Karla - yours is MUCH nicer than the pattern envelope. Well done!

I think you have progressed beyond beginner. I know this because I am a beginner!

Beautiful!! Good job!

Very nice,and does not look cheap in the pics. I think I see what you're talking about in the collar though. Sometimes using a higher end interfacing CAN make a "cheap fabric look expensive" ;-) Nice review - and nice jacket!

I love it! Very well done on your second jacket!

Beautiful jacket and such a flattering style on you! Nice job.

Nice jacket and beautiful smile.

Your jacket looks fabulous on you! You did a wonderful job! If you can bag a lining and realize you need extra length for movement, you'll be able to master bound buttonholes in a snap! Great review.

I really like that style! And the color! Good job.

Great top, what a nice style. Good fabric is worth using (although your jacket certainly looks nice in the pictures).

SewTwin said...
You did great if this is only your 2nd jacket!The jacket looks better than most Nieman's I've seen.Probably fits better than RTW,too. I think you actually made inexpensive fabric look expensive.Isn't that what some designers do?

That is one sharp jacket on you! I can't believe it's jacket #2. From here in Belgium I can't see the fabric is cheap (consolation?)
