Very cute! Isn't it nice that they made a trendy jacket just for us plus-sizers?

Cute jacket, made even cuter because you look so happy wearing it!

Terrific jacket on you! I love that material too. A tip on BWOF. They almost never add the sas to those rectangles you need to cut by size. They will tell you if it includes the sas, and if they don't assume that you need to add sas.

I like your walls, too. :o) I'd never have the guts to paint my walls that color!

Now THAT is cute! And you just HAD to provide the link to the fabric, didn't you? THANKS A LOT. As for Debbie's tutorial, I have that one printed out and stuffed in my Fitting Finesse book -- ha! I tried to talk her into publishing her own patterns, but she wouldn't listen to me! I REALLY like your jacket. I've got that magazine, too, so what's my problem? :o)

This looks GREAT! I loved this in the line drawing too - but it will be at least July before we get that Burda WOF :-(

This is so pretty and elegant. I'm such a fan of linen and the pattern in your jacket gives it an extra pop. Very nicely done!
