Thanks for being the first to review this pattern. I bought it last spring and each time I see it in my pattern stash I wonder why. Seeing your cheerful version of view C, however, validates my pattern purchase and I am now interested in making this one up.

Great jacket. You'll just HAVE TO make another trip to Paris to show the French how clever we Americans are! Thanks for wonderful review.

I will just add this comment to a great jacket, your well thought out placement on your fabric for the pattern is one of the features that makes this jacket sing. I know wearing it out in public will make you, "happy."

Great review. The lining part, I will use for my own instructions. Thanks.

The fabric is right up my alley, too! I really like this jacket. Thanks for reviewing. I have yet to buy and sew a Vogue pattern. This may be the first.

Yes - This jacket absolutely needs to be taken to Paris with black pants and heels! Another trip?

I love the fabric, it really does look better with out the seam down the back. BRAVO, I am sure that you will have plenty of fun wearing this state side!
