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)

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

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".

Very striking jacket. I particularly like the button bands and binding on the sleeves. Your creations are an inspiration!

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!!

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)

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!

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

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!

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

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!

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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

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

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!

Another spectacular jacket! Burda should pay you something because your creations are fabulous advertising for their patterns.

Simply beautiful fabric and fabulous design mods. I must revisit this pattern as you have certainly piqued my interest! Great review.

This is wonderful, as usual. I love the color and stripe effect. Beautifully made, as always. Brava!

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

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

I really like the wider collar. Another great jacket with a great review Debra!

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