The jacket looks really nice, the extra buttons and pockets make it very special. I was interested to read you converted the back gathering into pleats. I'm about to sew this jacket and thought of even convert them into darts. I too will lengthen the jacket.

This is no longer Vogue's pattern but yours. This top is very retro and so interesting. I love the fabric you chose. The fit is great on you. You look great.

Very cute jacket. Your decision to lengthen was wise - that length is really good on you. Adore the pockets! they really add something to this, and they're perfectly proportioned. Great job! P.S. You should post more pics in the gallery on you, rather than the dressform - you're super cute yourself - love your haircut!
