Nancy, how wonderful to read about your pursuit of your perfect jacket. Good for you! You've done a great job here and you should definitely be feeling proud of yourself. All of your tailoring techniques have helped to give this a really professional look. Very, very well done!!!

Lovely jacket! You did a fabulous job! I have been sewing for what...100yrs?....and I still have not tackled a tailored jacket...I have a billion patterns for them...but have never worked up the guts. Way to go!!

Great jacket! Your muslins were worth the effort. I've wondered about her more structured jackets and your excellent review makes me want another pattern.

Thank you all for your very generous compliments. I think this is a great basic pattern and well worth investing in even if you've never sewn a jacket before.

Wow- and I would not call Jackets 1 and 2 Muslins--wear those proudly as well!

Congratulations! This jacket is beautiful- and such a wonderful detail with that one glorious button. Your review is a testament to the fact that setting goals and keeping at it always pays off. You should be justly proud. Thank you for a wonderful review.

Nancy, Thanks so much for this thorough review!!! I have this pattern and have put off making it--it seemed slightly 'dated' to me. But now it is DEFINITELY going on my 'to sew' list. I love the one button look that you created. I like that you share the sources for all the materials that you have used in your projects. I will use your review and hints as I sew! You are a great role model as you make the pattern several times until you have the techniques down perfectly. I wouldn't think to do that. So Helpful! Thanks again! Carla

Nancy, your review is just as great as this beautiful jacket. You demonstrated why we make beautiful clothes but also to learn new techniques and stretch our abilities. Bravo.

Wonderful jacket. I think you made great choice opting for one button only. It makes it look very elegant and stylish.

thanks for the review on this jacket - your links were helpful too. I absolutely love the lines on this jacket. I can understand why it has become your TNT.

Nancy, THANK you for your review of this jacket. I just saw this pattern on the screen and glad to revisit your gorgeous jacket and review. I am still on my quest to find THE jacket. RTW does not do it for me anymore. I just added this to my list.
