Much more elegant in the shorter length, IMO. I think it looks great with or without the felting.

Kitty - I ama 5'8.5"... Long - it was really stylish - so start long if you have enough fabric, then perhaps shorten it to your liking...a bit at a time. I really think it depends on your own 'style' 0 where you 'go' - etc... Thrown over the shoulder it is magnificent - but though I'd love to have worn it that way - that's more 'new york' than central Illinois, I'm sad to say...

Londa, I have this pattern and attend to make the jacket out of blue green wool jersey that I purchased. May I ask how tall you are? If you are on the petite side it may be that the front was drafted too long for you by Vogue. I am 5'9" and trying to figure out if I should follow your tip of shortening the front also. Your jacket is gorgeous.

The jacket is beautiful. You were so wise to shorten it. Now I hope you will do the top. It looks gorgeous on the pattern front.

Fabulous jacket. I have been thinking of getting one of the Clover felting thing, it has just moved up to the top of my list.

Londa: I love what you've done with this jacket: the felting really makes it a very special garment. Won't be surprised it it sold very quickly at the show.

I like your changes to this jacket. It looks much more wearable than the pattern photo and it's classy too

Ody - it is not an embellishing machine, but the hand tool. My understanding is that the machine really, really flattens it - making it a 'part' of the fabric. I have a friend who is going to compare/test that for me...

Very pretty! I thought I recognized the Angelina when I viewed your photo...nice to know that it can be felted. Thanks for the review :)

What a beautiful jacket. Your alterations makes it more beautiful. Love the embellishments.

Beautiful. The needle-felting is lovely, and I agree that the front looks much more reasonable the way you've cut it.
