I just bought this pattern from another person and am excited about following your lead on this jacket. Your version is beautiful!

Oh, I love your jacket . It looks very nice on you. Thank you for the review. I have been thinking about trying this pattern.

Wow--you took the most ordinary looking patern and turned it into a fashionable, flattrering piece of clothing. Thanks for all the tips: wonderful looking on you. I, like another of the PR sewers, am putting this into my favorites.

Looks great - good for you on the pocket from Threads. I always mean to make those type of things.

Spectacular Jacket!!! The neckline is so flattering and fabric and colors you used are perfection. Great tips on how you lowered the horizontal seam. I certainly can't see that you have a bad body part lol!

I have earmarked your excellent review for future reference - we seem to have similar body shapes so you've pretty much made me my 'wearable muslin' with this pattern!

SO pretty! I love your version, and I like the fit so much better than as illustrated on the pattern. Great idea, too, moving that seam up. I'm going to try that myself.

Beautiful jacket! Your version looks much nicer than the pattern envelope.

Talk about a fabulous jacket and love the slimming properties. I've added it to my wish list.

Very nice. I like the simple lines of this jacket. The collar is really attractive in a different colour.

Wow, a stunning jacket. I agree with everyone else that your jacket looks much nicer than those on the pattern envelope. Great Job

That jacket looks spectacular on you. Nobody would ever guess that there are 'round bits' underneath at hip level. I love the colours and fabric too.

I love what you did with this pattern -- you made it totally your own.

I adore your interpretation of the jacket! You look absolutely stunning!

very flattering jacket. you did a great job adapting this pattern, it looks soooo much better than the illustration!

Good call on the changes you made, esp. at the shoulder line. The result is perfect for you!

I love what you did with this jacket! Much nicer, and more flattering, than the original version. Looking forward to the other versions, too!

Jane, this turned out so well and looks very nice on you--very slimming too--a winner. I love the colors on you.

Your version of the jacket is very beautiful and expensive-looking!

I agree, your jacket is really stunning and I didn't see that in the pattern illustration. The collar and cuff contrast is great as is your choice of clasp...bravo!

Wow, that is so much nicer than the pattern illustration. Kwik Sew fools me again. I had never looked at this pattern. Thanks and great project!

Your jacket is so beautiful - I have the pattern and now you have motivated me to use it! Thanks for the heads up on the waist seam placement - would definitely not be good place for me either as I do have more there than I want to show off!!
