Wow, Cheryl, easy to see that your sewing skills are excellent - such great seams and top stitching. Great jacket pattern, and it looks better on you than on the dress form. I think your sleeve length is just right. Looking at the pix on the form, I thought the yoke needed to be shortened, both front and back, but live - well it looks just great. Definitely needs to be made again. You're a pro.

Such beautiful work, you do! Your jacket is just perfect. (I have some jeans out of this same fabric. :o) I've often contemplated this pattern, and you may have pushed me over the edge!

Love both jackets on you. Perfect jacket for Valentine's Day, and the jean jacket is perfect for any day you wish. Your detail work is exquisite. And great review, too. -Lily

These both are very nice. What a good idea to use brocade--different fabrics really make a difference in the look.

Cheryl thanks so much for this detailed review. I have some Chinese Brocade that I wanted to make up in a jean jacket style and your second version was exactly what I was looking for. The rosy red looks beautiful on you!
