Patti, it is beautiful. I love the idea of adding a pleat. I think I'll have to steal that idea. You are fortunate to have found a pattern line that you can work well with.

Thanks. You have sewn what I love: a pattern with simple-simple lines paired with an interesting fabric.

Interesting fabric. Looks good, like the back pleat!

All of your custom touches make this jacket a winner. It turned out beautifully in that fabric. Maybe a steel blue top, as you suggest, would be the ticket to set off your lovely outfit.

Patti - this looks greatI had not thought of making this in a sheer.! Beautiful fabric - I love the steel blue idea. I think in warm weather it would be pretty with a tank under it, too so the sleeve would be "see-through".

The back pleat is an excellent idea. Looks great in your sheer fabric.

It's beautiful Patti - thank you so much for this review. Bought this pattern and have taken it out - put it back without using so many times have lost count. I love your treatment of it and I think this has certainly got me to the point of take out and use!!

I really like this--the style, your back pleat, the colors, everything. I have this pattern and will use your review to help me make it!

Just gorgeous. I can't believe you used black fusible interfacing - incredible. I'll have to try some of PP's interfacings

Your jacket looks lovely, excellent work. Thanks for the great review, especially for the info on the arm holes. I will keep that in mind when I try this out myself.

I found the arm holes to be too small, as well. I thought it was a "user error" being so new to sewing. If I made the next size up it would have been too large in every other area. Please tell me how you made the arm hole bigger. Thanks for the great review!
