This is a very, very interesting jacket. I wonder if the tucks take their inspiration form Montana jacket Vogue 2921. They are placed differently but... who knows. Again, this is a great, great jacket !

Oooo, very interesting. This is the first time I've seen this pattern made up (I was just looking at the pattern in my magazine that came today). Very pretty!

Your jacket looks wonderful! Any chance we could see a picture on you? I've had my eye on this pattern, but I wondered how it would look on a real person. I haven't really worn jackets much in the past, but I seem to be drawn to them. :) Very nice work!

Beautiful job! The pleats are an interesting and unusual detail. Very pretty color, too.

That looks really really nice and oh so wearable. Aly you must be one sharp looking lady.

Aly, what an interesting design this is! I can imagine that pleating the front design with various layers of fabric must be a bit tricky, but you've done a great job.

That looks really nice. I just had a look through your flickr folder - you're really clipping right along. You've got all your required wardrobe pieces done, and they look great.

This is a great jacket, the pleat detail at the front is really interesting, and the colour is lovely.

Wow! I love this jacket! I'm always looking for something corporate but not boring and this fits the bill. Thanks for the review.

I just purchased this pattern a couple of weeks ago. Glad to see the jacket made up. Looks very nice.

Your jacket turned out beautiful! I purchased this pattern just because of the detail. Give I'll have to busy and get it made.

I am not enamored with this jacket but you did a great job on the color and fabric choice! You are on your way to making another wonderful SWAP!

What a lovely jacket--the collar is so unusual. I really like it.

Your outfit is beautiful, I have studied that pattern, wondering what the construction method is now I know...make the jacket and then pleat. This jacket is modern looking with a vintage flair, very cute, when are McCalls patterns 99 cents again? I need this one!! Thanks for the review.

Beautiful jacket. The tucks in the front are very interesting and unique. You have a great plan going.

Very unique jacket. In looking at the tucks, I noticed the lining--very pretty!

Great job on the jacket. Distinctive but not too 'artsy'. Lovely color, also.
