Ok, first of all, you've got some seriously good genes in your family!! Mom looks FABULOUS!! What a great jacket (and a great surprise)! I really like the blended version.

Wow! That looks so great on her. So young and fresh, yet age appropriate. It does look like a very versatile pattern.

Priceless indeed. Your Mum looks wonderful! Thoughtful choice of style and fabric if no fitting session was permitted, and the end result fits very well indeed. Plus an excellently helpful review!

Beautiful jacket! Your mom looks great! I love your fabric (and the way you used the reverse side for contrast) and perfectly matching buttons! Thanks for the detailed, very helpful review.

Your Mom looks so chic! What a wonderful gift. Thank you for the tip about the Glad Press-N-Seal and the Cardboard support for topstitching. I will have to try those out!

Mum is 86? Wow, Vonne, she looks spectacular! Very chic and beautifully constructed jacket! I cannot imagine supermodels looking fabulous at your mum's age!

What an absolutely stunning jacket for your mom, just BEAUTIFUL. It fits her PERFECTLY, and your construction is FLAWLESS. I'd say you've got some pretty good genes in your family! By the way, my Mom's 80th birthday is Monday. :o) This is BEAUTIFUL!

I love that you took a pattern seemingly styled for a young person and made it look so classy for your mom. Just beautiful!

A fabulous jacket and it looks wonderful on her.

Vonne..another wonderful rendition of the BEF jacket! Your tips are very helpful and your mom looks so fashionable. I like your idea of leaving off the bottom band and reducing the fullness a bit. This is one of my favorite patterns!

Many thanks to everyone for your lovely comments. I will try to update the review with some more photos and notes of the cardboard support.
