Both jackets are just beautiful. They look beautifully executed, too.

Great review. Love both the jackets - much better than the ones on the pattern envelope.

Wow, doesn't the fabric make a difference? The first one looks bomber-jacket cool, the red one quite demure. Well done on two fabulous projects.

WOWee! Cool Designer Jacket. Bet people on the street are envious.

I did think about using Ambiance lining instead of the poly, as I'm not a fan of poly lining in general, but I just liked the way this coordinated with the jacket. It's heavy enough, thus far I haven't had any problem with static cling. :o)

You did justice to old Geoffrey with both jackets. But I don't quite get the poly lining comment and washability :-). Rayon lining is just as washable, you should just pre-wash, just like you should pre-wash your wool fabric and interfacing if you want to wash the jacket. And rayon doesn't get static and cling to you for dear life :-).

Beautiful work on both jackets. I think I've got this in my stash somewhere. I actually saw the original on a woman in Toronto several years ago, lol. GB's jackets are always interesting. Thanks for the review. Sue

I have coveted this pattern in my stash for a long time and was afraid to tackle it. I am encouraged by your super outcome(s) and will make the attempt one of these days. Thanks so much.

Love your jacket - I have the same fabric bought from Fabric Mart but haven't got around to using it yet - partytly because it's beautiful on both sides and I can't decide which to use. I love the way the "darker" side looks in your jacket.

Both jackets are beautiful--lovely work!! (I had admired the chenille at Fabric Mart, and now I wish I had bought some--darn it!) Great idea about the pocket. Thanks for helpful information!

Nice jacket! I always loved Beenes patterns, too bad we can't get the number of real designer patterns that we used to.

Nice jackets!

Two lovely jackets. Your facing and pocket changes worked well.

Lovely jackets. That's a good idea about leaving the side of the pockets open.
