Great review and adorable jacket. I, too, worked on a jacket this weekend but have to get the kinks worked out. Your topstitching is such we should all aspire to it. Wow!

Great jacket. Good decision to add the hem and shoulder pads. The structure looks high-end.

Oh my goodness this is to die for ! I picked this one up at a pattern sale for single adult daughter at a recent .99 sale. After seeing yours,I am in total awe and glad it is festering in the pattern stash for future use.

This is a beautifully made jacket and I love the embroidered initial on the lining. I have this pattern and was finding it difficult deciding which combination of options to use so it is nice to see some of them made up, thanks for such a helpful review.

Thanks for an extremely thoughtful review pointing out the very real advantages to a newbie while also mentioning how a more advanced sewist might want to adjust. And, of course, kudos to your always impeccable workmanship. Very cute jacket.

This jacket is too cute! I overlooked the pattern because I don't like the sleeves and length, but your interpretation of it is something I would wear. Will grab it at the next sale. Thanks for the great review.
