What a great, cute, unusual jacket. After seeing yours, I must have this pattern now.

What a nice pairing of pattern with fabric! It looks terrific on you, and I love the idea of the bound buttonholes.

Beautiful jacket (LOVE that fabric!!) and great review. Love the Powerdry lining idea! Definitely stealing that one. :)

This jacket looks great on you! I'd passed it over in the catalog, but now I'm going to take another look at it. Thanks for the tip about powderdry, too.

Lovely jacket, and a great combination with your pants (I love black/white combo's and made a skirt of the same fabric last year!). Must keep this pattern in mind.

I never would've looked at this pattern twice but your jacket is adorable. Sooo much better than the line drawing!

Your lovely black and white graphic fabric really showcases the 'portrait' yoke of your lovely jacket. And using powerdry for the lining was inspired, with the hot weather coming up. You look quite beautiful in your jacket, pant, and heels ensemble. Lovely, Lily

Very sharp looking! Thanks for the tip about inserting the yoke/lining. Great idea!

Fabulous jacket - love the print, love the fit - much better than a basic "boxy" style!

Yes Barbara, you definitely saw something in this pattern that I didn't see! The jacket is stunning on you!

How very nice - great work as usual

I really like your jacket. I like the dress style on the pattern envelope, too. I think this could work for me as a mother-of-the-bride dress ensemble, and your idea of using powerdry for the jacket lining would certainly be useful during hot flashes! Great job!

I love it ,very elegant . I guess you could even wear it open with a camisole under.

Wow! Your jacket is beautiful! I need to change my sewing priorities and better get crackin' on this pattern. Great idea to use powerdry for the lining. BTW...that is one sharp outfit you are wearing.

The jacket looks great in a print! Clever idea to use powerdry for the lining too.

Wow, this looks so much better than the pattern illustration. I really liked it the way you styled it with pants and heels. Your fabric is a great choice for it.
