Nikki, I have just bought the pattern and haven't yet made it, but in reading the instructions I felt like you that they are very basic and assume some dressmaking skills. I'm going to try view A in a polished cotton to wear over a dress in the same fabric: I'll review my results. Iris G.

Very stylish jacket, I like the pinstripe fabric.

I don't know, I haven't started making my muslins out of silk yet! :o The longer length does make this a more classic style (with a twist due to the collar). The shoulders actually look a hair wide to me, but it might just be my imagination.

A very flattering jacket, and I like your longer length. I think it makes it more of a classic. I always look forward to your reviews, as you're on my "favorites" list. Thanks!

I like the look. I made the same pattern in a different colour and added the flower. But I didn't lengthen the jacket, and now I find it too short. Too bad I didn't read your review before I began.

Very nice looking jacket!! I like the longer length, I don't care the shrunken jacket look either :oP

I like that collar--I think it's an interesting shape.

Love the use of pinstripes! This looks very dapper. The view E collar just looks fussy, but your looks very professional.

Nice looking jacket! I particularly like the fabric with the stripes. It really adds to the style. Thanks!

Love your jacket - it has that cool menswear look that is so in right now. Very nice job.
