I love your jacket. This pattern is in my stash and I have been thinking about making it for quite a while. I have made other Material Things patterns before and have also been pleased with the results.

Thanks Trixie! I knew there was a reason I liked your jacket style so much, because I already have the pattern in my stash! As soon as you mentioned Cecelia Podolak I checked out my pattern laying next to my machine and sure enough it is the Fearless Jacket and Vest! I hope mine will turn out as nice as yours. Thanks again!

Trixie, thanks so much for your review. I have one in progress in light wool...didn't finish the sleeves yet, and I 'tested' with the lining, as you did. Yes, LOTS of cutting and pressing. It's going together faster than I expected, though. I hope mine turns out as well as yours, it's really beautiful. Cecelia gave me great advice via email when I ordered my supplies, and she mentioned that it was designed with leather in mind.

Your jacket is stunning, bravo. The boiled wool is beautiful and the lines of the jacket look so feminine and flattering. Cecelia Podolak was one of the first sewing instructors I heard at a sewing expo about 12 years ago and I was inspired by her encouraging manner and careful instructions.

Really beautiful jacket - you will enjoy wearing this when summer comes to an end. Cecelia does give a lot of detailed instructions in her patterns

Gorgeous jacket. Two years ago when I was just starting to sew, I made a muslin using this pattern but never actually got around to sewing the real thing. Your review makes me think I should give this flattering pattern another try.

So, so pretty. I just LOVE your jacket. Your workmanship is impeccable. I have this pattern too, and have always admired its lines. I like it made up even better!
