Gorgeous jacket! I'm so jealous. :) I have another month to wait before I have this BWOF in my hands. I've been waiting ever since I saw this jacket to sew it. Yours is lovely and it makes me want to sew this pattern even more. Thanks for the review.

Beautiful Jacket SS. I love your fabric choice. Thanks sfor the link to the PP tip. I've used this in heavier weight jackets with wool - I like the idea of using a linen for summer fabric.

I love the fit you achieved by using the two sizes. This jacket has great lines. Thanks for the link to the PP techniques -- that is extremely useful information.

This is a great review and a wonderful looking jacket - thanks for the links to the tips. I have some unlined jacket ideas so the HK finish tip is very timely.

Another beautiful jacket. The neckline frames your face and draws the eye up - important detail for petites. Your reviews are inspirational to me and helpful for many. I want to make this one as well, thanks for doing the groundwork and sharing the process.

Beautiful jacket. I shall have to remember using a different size for the back and the front. You had wonderful results.

This is a beautiful jacket. I am particularly interested in how you fit the back. You did a wonderful job and I will try these methods to see if they will work for me. I didn't understand your 4th point "(4) I made a wedge tuck at the centre back waistline to bring it in 3/8" at the small of my back and then added half of this amount back at the hemline". Please explain how you did the tuck. I also have a sway back and am sure this would improve my fitting. Thank you for taking the time to write this up so thoroughly.

I have to rush out & buy this issue - here's hoping I can find it. I love the design lines!

Leslie in NZ, the sway back adjustment is essentially a horizontal dart that removes some of the length at the centre back and nothing at the side seams. It is explained in this discussion, which includes a link to a site that has a diagram. My dart was a wedge 3/8" wide at the centre back (folded size 3/16") tapering to zero at the side seam. HTH.

Seamingly Simple, will you please provide with a new link to see your jacket? Your current link says, 'sewing_engineer has moved their photos to Flickr. From now on you'll need to go to Flickr to view their photos.. ' Thank you!

There; photos are fixed now. Yahoo is making its users move all their photos to Flickr, resulting in broken links. One by one, I'm repairing each review.
