This jacket design is a wonderful style on you! All your jackets/tops from this pattern are beautiful and you did a fantastic job with your fabric choices. Based on your earlier reviews, I purchased this pattern, now just gotta get to it...

All 3 versions are really wonderful. I just bought this pattern so I'm catching up on the reviews for it. I love that last print ... very cute on you.

so so cute! This is just the ticket when you just need a little something to cover up - or for a shirt. Very nice.

What a great jacket! You did a wonderful job and it's so lovely.

OK. Now I simply must get this pattern, whether it is on sale or not. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade: Your faux buttons demonstrate your genius for overcoming obstacles. I really like this pattern.

Another beautiful top! Now I really have to have this pattern. Thanks for all the details on the changes you made.

This little jacket is just as cute as it can be! I love the flowered print for summer. :o)

Your versions are more enticing than what's picture don the envelope! You look marvelous!

Both jackets(tops) look great - you did a very neat sewing and fitting job. Thanks for these reviews - am going to get the pattern.

It is so you! It's good to know that an intermediate sew-ist can get such good results from a jacket pattern. With your excellent descriptions and cautions, I just might get up the nerve to try it.

I really like that jacket on you - it has a very contemporary look to it! It fits you well and the color is fabulous on you!

Wow, your jacket looks wonderful, lovely color and very stylish silouette. Thanks for sewing and reviewing it so quickly; I just bought this one and was curious as to what people thought of those pleats. Great buttonhole save, also.

I love your jacket - as usual you look as cute as a button and the color is for you!! Am adding this pattern to must get list. Thanks for such a helpful review

VERY cute! I love this!! Beautiful color, clean lines, and it looks great on you :) .

I keep eyeing this pattern as I like the way it looks on the envelope. Glad to read your review, looks good on you.

I love your jacket - you look great in it. Nice to know about the sizing running fairly large. I think I will have to add this one to my list at the next Butterick sale.

You just look TOO CUTE in this outfit! And how wonderful that other gals on here were able to help with a mini-disaster ( e.g. button holes=my worst fear)! With anything linen-nee ( made up word) I try to just do old fashioned stay stiching around every piece @ the beginning. A pro sewer told me so much "linen" now days has heavy duty amts of RAYON which is great to stretch out! great job. My jo-anns has buttericks on sale this week for a buck 99 - so this pattern just hit my list!

Your jacket looks wonderful on you! Your fabric choice and color is perfect for the style. A wearable muslin -- lucky you! I'm glad that you were able to repair your buttonhole - no one (except your FoPR) will ever know. : )

I love that jacket! Nice job.

Nice job. I picked this pattern up at the last sale you have inspired me to give it try.

Looks great and very stylish.

Kellie, Judy, & Sue...thank you for the wonderful complements. I get such a "sewing high" when a pattern and fabric produces a comfy & wearable garment. Rhonda...I've been sewing a size 10 in some garments that have quite a bit of ease. If the garment is fitted, I've have to go up to a size 12. That's my personal findings so far. I started tracing Kwik Sew patterns and now it has become a natural habit for me. Plus, I am not too fond of the Big 4 pattern tissue. Thanks again for the complements.

Thanks for this review, I noticed this pattern yesterday when browsing on a pattern web site. I love it and after your review I am convinced I MUST have it too! Your jacket looks lovely.
Rhonda in Montreal said... (5/19/08 5:41 PM) Reply
Great jacket!! You like jackets lots, too, eh!! Do you USUALLY sew a size 10? (Should I stick to my "usual" size for this jacket?) You look fab in blue & black--that's why you have lots. Although the "fad" is HUGE buttons, I find we have our limits as Petites, eh!! Tell me, WHY did you trace your pattern? Do you usually? GREAT JOB!!
Judy Wentz said... (5/19/08 5:32 PM) Reply
Very flattering!!
Kellie R. said... (5/19/08 5:27 PM) Reply
I'm so glad you wrote a review for this!!! I love everything about this - the color, the fabric and pleated detailing. You did a great job; thanks for all of the photos and the great review! Enjoy wearing it - you look great!
