I too missed this when it was 1st posted. beautiful work, looks so much better than the pattern. Thanks for the pointers on bustier ladies. That counts me out till i lose at least 20 lbs. Thanks for sharing your other pictures.

I'm not sure how I missed this one when you first posted it, but what a GREAT jacket. I love everything about it ... and I might even have this pattern -- ha! Very inspiring!

To Yummymummy38: When I lose ten pounds you will see one. I failed to make the chest ajustment from B cup to D cup. Everything else fits perfect, but I can't close the top button. Good motivation to lose some weight this summer!

Bee-oooooo-tee-ful! I love seeing this fabric made into a garment--especially such a pretty one (I fell for its coordinating sister).

Your jacket is gorgeous! I have this pattern & fabric but haven't got 'round to it. Yours is inspiration and motivation.

Thanks for all of your comments! I cannot wait to wear this. I think this weekend sounds good, while the evenings are still cool enough.
