I really love this on your daughter. I think that the drapier quality of your fabric works better with this pattern than the matelasse that was used in the magazine. It is certainly more flattering. I was glad to see the progress of yours and Nancy's jacket on the boards as it convinced me that even though I love this jacket it is not for my body! My narrow shoulders would have me totally redrafting the neckline I think.

Ladies, thank you for all the lovely comments you made:-) Kay, yes, yes and this time around I didn't even have to buy thread, already had it for an other project. Marita

What an outstanding jacket! Don't you love it when all you need to buy is the thread?
