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

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

Nice jackets!

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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 :-).

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)

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

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.

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