Gosh that's gorgeous! And I agree with Christas and Aixoise - you should update your skill level. Ha! especially since this was 3 years ago!

Beautiful job! Professionally done! :)

This is a beautiful jacket, well executed. I think the use of natural fibres always makes a garment look better.... and who wants to wear a plastic bag i.e. polyester? Would be ideal over a simple shift dress.

Your jacket is gorgeous and far more beautiful than the pattern picture.

I bought this pattern a while back and you have just reminded me why I loved it so much! I really like it in the sober menswear fabric.

very classy, you did a beautiful job!

Absolutely elegant. This reminds me of some of the fabulous timeless fashions from movies made in the 1950's. You are going to look like a million dollars wearing this (or at the very least like Grace Kelly or Tippy Hedron)!

Very special jacket. It is so lovely. Your sewing, pressing and attention to detail make it a cut above.

So very elegant!

That is one stunning jacket! From the pattern envelope it is impossible to see how elegant it might be. Gorgeous!

This turned out so cute. I am so glad I already have this pattern. Looks like I will need to make it up

SO chic and elegant. I LOVE this (especially in that wool crepe, the BEST FABRIC in the universe). :o)

Wow is that nice! Very different and I like that it's not all that boxy. Great job.

That is very classy.

Gorgeous!! Classic, feminine, interesting--all-in-one, eh!! LOVE that it's in grey, too! It's a "more male colour"/very female look... Very sexy, too!
Riordan said... (2/21/09 5:19 PM) Reply
Very pretty--your wool is perfect for this pattern. Lovely work!
Mahler said... (2/21/09 5:09 PM) Reply
This is such an interesting pattern. Wonderful jacket. Your choice of colour is excellent. It allows us to fully appreciate your excellent craftsmanship and the original lines. Bravo !
Aixoise said... (2/21/09 5:08 PM) Reply
Elegant. Don't you love wool crepe? I agree with those who said that your version looks so much better than the one in the envelope photo. Are you sure you're still a beginner - even an advanced one? I'd say Intermediate is more apt.
Markie1 said... (2/21/09 5:00 PM) Reply
Wow. I have to make this!

Lovely.

Beautiful jacket!

Wow - that looks really sharp!!! Yours looks SO much cuter than the picture on the pattern. This might go on my wish list just based on your picture!
Sew4Fun said... (2/21/09 4:27 PM) Reply
Beautiful jacket! The collar sits so nicely. Great job!

I think your jacket looks better than the model on the envelope. Beautiful!!!

Lovely jacket! It is now on my to-do list.
Christas said... (2/21/09 4:14 PM) Reply
You did a beautiful job of sewing this. This is a pattern I recently purchased. So nice to see it sewn up.....looks so perfect! ***Edited***I just looked at your review again and saw that you rate yourself as an advanced beginner. I agree with Aixoise, you should bump up your rating. This jacket shows wonderful skill.
