I like your jacket, but agree with the comment on your blog that it's more a blouse then a jacket. Still thinking of making this myself, but the fabric I had in mind for this will not work. I now know thanks to your very helpful review and all the details on your blog.

Ooh, you finished it! It is a very fashion-forward garment and your fabric choice will enable you to wear it with a multitude of colours. Thanks for all the helpful photos in your album.

This jacket turned out great! The fit is magnificent! It it had been any bigger, that would have taken away from the style of the jacket... it's perfection!

Nancy, It is truly elegant. I spent so much time on your blog just admiring it. Thank you for all the photos. And a really warm public thank you for doing this with me. I was very nervous to do it alone and Nancy -not knowing me at all!!-graciously accepted an offer for a sew-along. I never would have attempted it alone. I admire your work and this is just one more stunning example of your skill.

I can't even tell you how much I like this, Nancy. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it, no bull! Just from that little bitty thumbnail, before I ever clicked on the image, it was obvious just how FLATTERING this is on you. What a fun review. Thanks!

I totally and completely fell in love with this pattern when I first saw it in the magazine (I don't subscribe...sigh). I'm soooo glad it's reviewed, and the fit is amazing on you. I'm jealous!
