Well Erica you look absolutely devine in that photo. We are all very lucky to have you on PR. Each of your reviews is like a tutorial - I don't have this pattern but I think I'm going to have to get it at the next sale in town and try to make it. Thank you for such a wonderful review.

Your inspirational touches to this stunning jacket have moved it into a higher echelon of style and grace. The bound buttonhole/covered button thru the lapel is unspeakably chic, and your decision to break and bias the under collar have produced a pristine rolled collar. A masterpiece. -Lily

Now this is definitely a jacket style I love! Thanks for this review--I'm putting this pattern on my wish list. Your jacket looks absolutely lovely on you in that terrific color too!

Beautiful jacket and looks great on you--I like the top button, which I don't see on the pattern. Just bought this pattern last week and now can't wait to make it.

I thought this pattern looked really cute and your jacket proved it. Nice!

Physics Girl said...
Wow: It's amazing what the right fabric and changes do to a pattern! You always pick 'em right!) At the last sale, I'd scrunched my nose up at this pattern (unlined... blah color... what details?)... Your sunny look (love the buttons, especially the one on the label!) has me thinking that maybe the pattern might be devine after all.

GoSewGirl said...
Your jacket is just beautiful! I saw this pattern and was pondering how I would do it. I am inspired seeing how you took a *sportswear* pattern and changed the techniques to make a gorgeous tailored jacket! Your work is really impeccable and it looks great on you! It makes me want to start sewing for spring, even though we're still knee deep in snow where I live!
2/28/08 10:05 AM
Beek said...
WOW! Great tips. I like that one about the penny in the mitered corners. I am going to make a note on that. Also, I just purchased this pattern and yours looks fabulous, so I am very inspired to tackle it. Your bound buttonholes are perfect, the color is SO in vogue (practically every garment in the March issue of ELLE is canary yellow!) Way to go!

Debbie Cook said...
Wondeful jacket! The color is gorgeous, trendy, and perfect for you. Great construction details.
2/28/08 10:25 AM
CynthiaSue said...
umm, correction: It looks BETTER than the pattern envelope. That was just your muse-You did something much grander. Your fit is impeccable. Gosh how do you NEVER have twisted sleeves or fit wrinkles ANYwhere. Your usual couture methods stand out and make this jacket outstanding. Let's put a price tag...hmm $3600!! :):) Michael Kors, eat your heart out!
2/28/08 10:46 AM
Jane S said...
Erica, each garment is just better looking than the last! Wow, this is gorgeous. Color is wonderful on you and very in this season. Your distinctive details made it better than the pattern, just what personal sewing is for! Bravo.
2/28/08 11:06 AM
Marji said...
love that sunny happy color and the extra details, like the covered buttons and the lapel button. Beautiful way to enter spring.
2/28/08 11:23 AM

Fabulous jacket. You took the "Divine Details" one step farther!

I like your jacket much better than the one on the pattern envelope. Lovely.

You look so fresh and crisp in this color and the style fits you wonderfully. I love how detailed you are in your review on your blog too. You are just making me crave the warmer weather of spring in this jacket, for sure!! Wonderful job!

Awesome: fabulous color, fabulous review, fabulous creation once again from you: if you ever retire the jacket, I'll be in the long line to buy it! Thanks for review.

You go girl! Not only does your jacket look exquisite on you--the craftsmanship is impeccable! If only my tailoring turned out as well as yours!

In a word, exquisite! Gorgeous jacket!

Mahler said...
Superbly sewed ! Very lively color, an excellent choice for spring. You look wonderful with that jacket. I bought that pattern as well. I find it so interesting to see your interpretation of it. I was thinking about sewing it in bleu linen (middle weight) with a sand wash look. Your version is dressier. As usual you are a source of insparation.

Dei said...
I always enjoy your reviews. So much good information. Love the color, all fresh and new. Thanks for the construction tips. Kudos, Girl. You create such great gear.

Another beautiful work of art. Thank you for the informative review
2/29/08 7:49 PM
rozzybabe said...
You're obviously a great sewer! I've never attempted bound buttonholes, although I've got many books with detailed step-by-step instructions. Am I being intimidated, or would you have a suggestion as to the best technique? Would love to hear from you so that I can get another much needed sewing "challenge" under my belt!

poppyq said...
What a gorgeous color. I am making this one too right now. I also lengthened the sleeves, and also raised the back waist seam about 2" It looked a little low-slung on me (yes, I actually made a muslin of this one!) I am using deep blue linen/rayon and hope to post a review. Thanks for the encouragement!
3/27/08 10:02 PM
Granen said...
I'm convinced - I'll buy the pattern!
