Wow, your jacket is gorgeous. It looks great on you!

simply beautiful. I thought that collar looked familiar! I loved this jacket, did not love the pockets or the pleats on the sleeve. What you've done is brilliant.

Thanks for figuring out the new collar and sleeves! Your modified jacket looks fantastic, and I hope to follow your example.

Details are impeccable and the fit is divine. I especially like the way you did the pockets with the little darts in the corners. Thanks for all the great photos.

What fantastic topstitching! I also love the lining, of course. This is a great jacket and I hope you'll get lots of wear out of it!

Beautiful jacket. I love your choice of lining fabric. Your jacket will look as lovely thrown over the back of your chair as it does while wearing it.

This is great! I love the way you mixed and matched sleeves and collars from other BWOF patterns and came up with something that looks like a piece of perfection. Love the lining, too!

Great morphing! What a fabulous wee jacket.

As much as I liked the ruffled cap sleeves on Burda's version, I can see that having real sleeves will be more practical. This is a fabulous-looking jacket.

Well done! I hope the coat I plan on making this summer turns out as great as this one.

Initially, this pattern did not "speak" to me. I love the changes you made. So much more fashionable!

Well done! I traced this pattern two weeks ago but didn´t get around to sewing it yet. I was also looking for full sleeves, will try the one you took. Thanks for the review!
