Very nice! I have this pattern and will have to make it up similarly to yours. Thanks for the pointers on top stitching, underlining, and adding a lining.

Sarah, you look like a million bucks in this! You have done a fabulous job and I'm sure you will receive many compliments on this garment. This really is very snazzy! Thanks for the advice about adding a lining. I, too, love the feel of linings on jackets and these days am not inclined to wear unlined jackets. Well done!

Beautiful jacket. Appreciate the tip on topstiching.

Great job your chic, stylish jacket. I see what you mean about the closures. I agree it might help moving the hooks farther inside.

Beautiful jacket and very helpful review - do see what you mean about the hook and eyes and maybe moving them in would help. I had quite a chuckle as I to would be in the same place trying to hook those up! Must say - lovely background too!!

Very very lovely - your topstitching looks perfect as do the buttons.

Sarah, this jacket ROCKS! I love it. I think the closures look just fine from an aesthetic standpoint, but I bet it's hard to find them and close them-- I dislike hook-and-eyes for that reason. Great jacket!!!

Aren't Nancy's fabrics fantastic? I drool over every newsletter. Your jacket looks awesome. I think you deserve to upgrade your sewing level to "Advanced" :-) Sue

You LOOK like a million bucks in this jacket, too. Beautifully done! - Yeah, put those hooks in a bit more, you'll want to be able to close it from time to time, don't you think?

This jacket is so gorgeous. I would love to have something like this. You did a beautiful job, the fabric and buttons go great together.

Beatiful jacket. I have this pattern and I love what you did with it. I will be using all your tips when I make mine. Thanks!

fuzzygalore said...
You do look like a million bucks :-). And I totally agree about the lining. But I wonder about those hooks... Is there any way you could replace them with snaps, say by adding a small flap? I'd feel like mere thousands in a jacket I had to fasten in the morning and leave as is..
3/17/07 1:59 PM
SarahWeb said...
Fuzzygalore, that's a great suggestion. I'll have to think it over. Maybe if I can secure the flaps back to the inside for when I want to leave the jacket open, that might be a good solution. Thanks for the idea!

Excellent job, looks great on you! The buttons really make it. I have had the same experience with fittting before and after lining.

Your jacket is beautiful and fits well, a real "keeper." Love the buttons, and nice to know about FSG fabrics!

Excellent. Great buttons. Well worth lining.

BillieJean said...
Beautiful job, Sarah. A cantilevered snap at the front might work better than the hook and eye. I think it would pull that part of the jacket closer together and wouldn't show. Also, you could do that by feel - wouldn't have to actually see it.

Fabulous jacket, the button detail looks great.
