WOW! I try to only comment on the really great reviews since I am so far behind on reading reviews; and this one was worth it! Designers need to take a cue from you..

Nice job with this. It looks very nice in your (difficult) fabric. Sounds like a great pattern line for you.

Beautiful work! As a curvy girl who has started to use HP's (i've made the pencil skirt -- will review it when I get a picture) it's good to see reviews from a curvy-girl. Lovely.

That is gorgeous. It gives me some ideas about a silk dupioni that's been sitting in my stash for 3 or 4 years.

This is gorgeoous! And I am happy to see someone larger review this pattern. May I ask what cup size you are? I am not a plus size but at the upper size of regular. but I am a DD cup and that always makes lots of work.

A nicely written review, and a terrific jacket. I had not really noted this pattern, and now I'm putting it on my wish list.

I have had my eye on this pattern since the first release, but I wasn't sure how it would look on my "luxury sized frame" (I love that term!) Your jacket is beautiful. Great construction! Thanks for the review.

Thanks so much for the review of Hot patterns for plus sized! Beautiful fabric and a really different design! I will add my vote to see a picture of it on you!

Gorgeous! I've never worn mine (which is a plus size) because in the end I made it too small... waaah! Yours is so pretty, I think I might have to revisit this pattern (although I did have to do a lot of alterations, so not as lucky as you in that sense). I hope you keep doing more HP reviews, yours are really inspiring!

Stunning, almost looks like dupioni? Super success with HP !

What a lovely jacket! I'm assuming that you didn't have the problem with the too small sleeves that I had.

Madeleine, You did such a wonderful job on this jacket - i want it! I love your fabric choice, would have loved to see it on you. It's nice to hear HotPatterns fit you so well. I have a couple of them i haven't made yet but this encourages me to hop right to it.

Great jacket. I love the lines on this. And the fabric is delicious.

I can see why you wear this jacket so much. It's very, very nice.

I have loved looking at this pattern since HP started up and really appreciate your review. I may have to add to the pattern stash. The jacket looks great, would love to see a picture on you, if that's possible.

Very interesting... the smaller sizes of HP seem to induce fits of total re-drafting in almost everyone. So I'm intrigued to see that the larger sizes seem so good, not even needing an FBA. OK, I'm going to have to try :-). Thanks!
