This pattern has been very difficult for me. I chose the Large size and wound up with the funnel collar covering my face. It improved when I took in lots of fabric in the top center back down about 10". I've not given up on it because I like the look but am still having problems.

You ended up w/ a great jacket. (Sorry, don't have this to make any comparison). I like it both ways, but un-buttoned it looks really spectacular.

I have to laugh at your comment, "Did not like the funnel neck that came half way up my face." :o)) BUT, through sheer perserverence, it looks like you figured out a great way to get around that little problem. I have this pattern, too, and if I ever make it, I'm going to go back to your review. I've got it bookmarked now. Very nice result! On another note, I've only made one top that had a funnel neck, and it was out of a knit ... well, it was supposed to be, but my so-called knit had practically NO stretch. Anyway, I loved the look of the collar, but it just about drove me BUGGY wearing it. As I recall, I was constantly yanking on it in the front.

I commend your diligence in correcting this pattern. I don't think it fits anyone correctly on the first try. I think you have a good version to wear.

Clin, I admire your perseverance with this pattern. I have nothing to offer regarding the funnel neck, other than I am not a fan of them myself either. I do like what you've done with the piping on this garment. Piping really does add a little something special to garments. You're obviously keen to get this pattern to work for you. Keep at it and I can't wait to see more.

I own this pattern, having purchased it at a sewing expo where Linda Lee (isn't that her name?) had lots of versions of this made up....(you've probably seen several versions of it in the SW gallery). I really liked your jacket but was so surprised to see that it was the Tribeca...just goes to show you the broad range of creativity and why this site is so fun to cruise. I have wondered about the high neck, but notice that on the SW site they apparently have done a contrast facing in several of theirs examples and just flipped the collar back like you plan on doing with yours. The piping is a great idea...I love piping. Very, very nice.

Great looking jacket, Clin. I also have a pattern (for a dress) that I keep fiddling with and then putting away because I can't get the fit right. But, it's like you don't want to let the pattern get the best of you, so you keep going back to it. I think your jacket looks wonderful.

A very good-looking jacket. I dunno - that tall collar could be handy for days when I don't want to take the time to put on makeup.
