Incredible! Thank you for the wondeful review of a great pattern, and great construction techniques. Isn't it just cliche to say "they don't make 'em like they used to" ? But it's true. Beautiful suit. I'm sure you've enjoyed wearing it.

What a cool design, now wonder you had to have it! Wish more of today's patterns would do a great back to go with a great front. Really beautiful and such a great review to go with it, thanks for taking the time!

I love those older single-size Vogue patterns. You can get a real sewing education using them. Wonderful jacket with incredible couture details - I'm in awe!

this is lovely - please could you tell us whether the balancing the dart was in the enclosed instructions with the pattern or is this something that you, yourself, do independently?

Wonderful jacket - your excellent work shows through. Oh for the days when Vogue was so much more haute than it is now!! Thanks for such a wonderful review.

Your jacket is absolutely beautiful as is your work. It's too bad that Vogue doesn't devote as much detail in the instructions of their designer patterns today as they used to in the 1960s-1970s. I'm sure everyone has learned something from your detailed review. Thanks.
