That is a great idea to cover the shoulder seam - I may "borrow" this from you. Beautiful stripey jacket!

This is just so beautiful - you always do such detailed and wonderful work but this time I think you have truly excelled at making a very special jacket from an ordinary pattern. Well done Debra

Beautifully made! Thanks for another informative review. I truly wish I had a duplicate of every garment you create in my closet!

Debra, What a beautiful jacket. Your workmanship is topnotch and I just love the colour of the fabric. You will look just fabulous in your new garment!

Very impressive, in both construction and style.

Your review is inspiring! Thank you for taking the time to talk about what you created PLUS the reasoning behind it. For beginning sewers, it helps so much to read WHY an experienced sewer decides to go one way, rather than another!

Debra, you are always so creative with your striped fabrics. This jacket is just beautiful.

This qualifies as exert tailoring. Absolutely gorgeous. Would love to see a pic of you wearing your creation.

What a beautiful jacket! I think your semi-attached button bands better than the pattern. It's always great to have a jacket that you can transition into fall. It's so hard to find fabric that does that so well. Now that you have the kinks worked out, this can be a pattern that you can use often.

Great jacket! I really love all the different angles you achieved with it still looking smart and professional. Wonderful job.

Oh, I just love everything about this!! I was on the fence w/ the magazine version, but yours has sold me!! I imagine it's quite flattering on, and the fabric is beautiful!

Gorgeous! I love the bias strips at the shoulder - what a perfect detail! And as always, a very helpful review.

Stunning! When I saw the jacket photo in the gallery, I knew it was your signature creation. The EOS fabric is gorgeous. As always...enjoyed your review.

This turned out to be super-cute. I think I didn't even notice this pattern in the mag - I 'll have to go back and look it up!

Really beautiful work, Debra. The detailing that you've included really takes this to a very high level. I'm very, very impressed.

Love this jacket! This fabric slipped by me; it is so pretty. Your workmanship is topnotch, as always. I just looked at the pattern in the magazine: do you simply redraft the facing pieces so there is no shoulder seam? I have not read this idea before and Louise Cutting is the queen of reducing bulk, eg. her collar design. Could you elaborate a bit on your facing procedure or tell me where I might find the idea? Thanks!

What a wonderful use of stripes! Your work is immaculate and the jacket is absolutely delicious. I would wear this in a heartbeat.

I can't say enough good things about your excellent review! You answer all the questions about a pattern I am likely to have. The jacket is gorgeous!

AWESOME! I love the use of the bias in the design. Great minds think alike, because I've been planning something similar for myself and my aunt. This is a perfect inspiration top in that regard. :o)

Another stunner! I so envy your closet.

Like everything you make, I want one. I did make a basic jacket by this pattern, have not yet reviewed it though, mine is boring yours is striking!!

WONDERFUL jacket. The fabric used and the way you worked with the stripes is really beautiful. Impeccable work (as always). I'm going to find the issue and will certainly place this on my "to sew list".

AmyRose said...
Great detail. The bias layout, design changes, trim detail and expert workmanship make this a one of kind jacket, rather than home made.

I am thinking of making this jacket and really appreciate the detail you have provided in this review. Your spicy linen jacket looks beautiful and very well sewn. Thanks! Regards, Gaylene (Second Avenue)
