Nice jacket, and the review is very clear on helpful tips to make this project a keeper. I'm ordering the pattern now !

Great job! Yes, Burda does have some of the best men's styles out there. Well, I'll still enter the 'sewing for men' contest even if I don't have much of a chance next to your jacket. :) I think we have all done the 'oops the wrong side of the fabric will show' routine so don't feel bad.

Great job on the jacket! That's one thing I haven't tackled yet...jackets. I don't know why.

Nice, some guy should be happy about this new jacket.

Your jacket looks great. The notched lapels came out perfectly--taking the time to sew those in two steps really does pay off. I like the zigzag topstitching.

Your jacket looks great, especially the unusual fabric. Great review.

Great jacket. I like all your details. Congrats on your first review.

Awesome jacket, thanks for sharing. I actually bought this pattern recently for my husband as it seems to have a lot of potential. Thanks for pointing out the half & full lining issue, I wondered about that when I was skimming through the directions. Can't wait to see more from you!

This looks great, and yes, that's the way I like to do a notched collar, too.

Too cool! It has a great look - clean lines, great looking sleeves. btw, I used to work in film too, first as a wardrobe mistress then a set decorator.

Looks fab. I have this one on my list to get for hubby so it's great to hear it was fairly easy and straight forward. It looks very hip and slighly shaped.

Wow! I love your jacket. Yours is so much better than the pattern photo. I like the decorative stitching you chose for the pockets and your choice of buttons. Great!!
