Impeccable details - you put so much thought into how to use the fabric to enhance the design, right down to which thread to use topstitching which pieces. And the review is so helpful - you always generously provide those little details that aid the next person to attempt the pattern. THANK YOU!

MAGNIFICENT !!!! I love this ... ! Could you please tell us where you got the fabric??? Pleeeaase ... ! Even the snaps you used look great with it. As I said ... it's just magnificent! So wearable and so good looking ... I can see how it would be extremely versatile. Great job!

This is one beautiful, definitely unusual jacket. I wondered what the fabric was when I saw the photo--can't believe it's linen! I love it.

Debra, thank you for this very informative review. Your jacket is great. I like your personal addition like the partial belt in the back. Here is one more fabulous garment coming out of your sewing room. You are very inspiring ... as usual.

Amazing garment ( and review)! I wish I had ordered this fabric when I had the chance. I saw a jacket made with this same fabric (not nearly as lovely as your's). Very, very expensive too!! You are right, this will be a very vesrsatile jacket!! -Annette

It's fabulous - easily a $900 jacket at any upscale department store (and it wouldn't fit!) Thanks for the construction notes, too. I'm experiencing serious envy here.....

This jacket is very snazzy, Debra. Fabulous job! Did you have to do any pre-treating of the fabric since you will be dry cleaning?
