Very sharp jacket! The seaming is really unique. Thanks for your review - I had never heard of this line of patterns.

Great looking jacket. I also had never heard of this line of patterns before these designs look more unique than the big pattern companies.

You've managed to make an interesting jacket look very pretty as well. Well done. It's got me interested in boiled wool.

Wow, very smart looking jacket indeed. Thanks for the review and web address, boiled wool is very in and very warm - just heading into winter here in Australia so will be a good idea.

You're right - the back is especially nice, the whole jacket very effective. Out here in Oregon, felting wool is quite in the mode now, and this is a fabulous line of patterns you've introduced us to here. Thank-you so much.

The jacket looks really nice - especially like the seam detailing you did. Thanks for the info on this pattern line.

I love this type of single layer, no facings tailoring! The varigated thread is perfect. I do have one observation though; you might want to use your iron along with a pressing ham and a clapper to shape the bust seams and to steam shrink the extra fabric along the hem for a nice clean edge.

Great jackets! Thanks for sharing this new-to-me pattern company. I liked many of the designs.

I've done some boiled wool research myself, and most advice is to buy twice as much yardage of wool jersey as needed, although many types of wool are said to give success.

As soon as I clicked on the pattern link and saw the back of the jacket, I thought, oh, I hope she includes a picture of the back. :o) I LOVE the back ... AND The front, for that matter. I had not known about this pattern company, so THANKS A LOT! (I mean that in a good/bad way.) The wool that you started with, was it a fairly loose weave? It sure did felt up nice, or whatever they call it. I have LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of patterns, so many it impedes my decision-making, yet I rarely say something is a "must have." THIS, though, has made the short list. Thanks for the great review.

Smashing jacket! I hadn't heard of Trudy's patterns before - and I'm in Canada, lol! Thanks for introducing her to us; I'm sure I'm not the only one who is adding her pattern to their 'must sew' list. Sue

Lovely jacket, just lovely. The variegated thread following the many seams is so stunning; and the many seams themselves just pop this jacket so marvelously. I like just as much your earlier version with the outward serger seams and don't think it looks inside out at all. Extremely flattering, Lily

What a sharp looking jacket. The variegated thread makes it especially special. :)

Wonderful jacket! You did a great job. Thanks for introducing us to this line of patterns. Boiled wool is way too hot for Texas but I see some other patterns I would like to try.
