What a beautifully sewn and fitted jacket. I am just starting down the jacket sewing. As recommended by the Jackets for real poeple I have decided to start with a Channel style jackt, no collar. I got this pattern for the next jacket as it has a shawl collar, abit easier then the notched collar.

The jacket looks very good. Your details make it even more impressive. A great review.

Congratulations, you got a lovely fit, great welt pockets and lovely lapels. Plus now you have an altered pattern you know will fit.

Your jacket is beautiful and the fit is perfect. I think Palmer/Pletsch has wonderful, easy to understand instructions and their welt pocket instructions are the best. Your lapels came out great, too. You are on your way to making more great fitting jackets.

I'm glad you got over your TJF! Your TJ is TDF! LOL! I also have JFRP and plan to use it on my current TJ. OK. Enough of that! Love the welt pockets. Great jacket, Judy!

That is a beautiful jacket, so nicely made. It fits you perfectly, too.

You have convinced me to try a tailored jacket. I really dread that tissue fitting, but I'm going to give it a try. Your jacket is beautiful. Your welt pockets are an inspiration!

Your pocket is beautiful. Great jacket, love the lining.

Great job. You have managed to get the fit of the jacket just perfect. It is the type of jacket you will have for years and wear many many times. Love the colour too.

Beautiful. I also am now interested in the jacket book and pattern as a way to teach myself and get over the fear. Thanks for the review.

Everything about that jacket looks so professional - fit, collar, welt pockets etc. Well done. I'd be really proud if I had done it.

Oh my, great job. It looks perfect on you.

Your fit is TDF and I love how RTW it looks. I've made a couple of tailored jackets and I still have TJF. Thanks for the book recommendation. I guess I need to break down and buy it.

This looks wonderful on you. You got a terrific fit including the back. Glad you've now overcome your jacket fears and won't be afraid to make others. Nice job!

Congratulations! The fit and the execution are both perfect, and so is the color.
