You did a great job of this, and the results are fabulous. Thanks for the tip about the shoulder dart, since I have the same build :-)..

I always enjoy seeing patterns form LSB sewn up. YOur jacket is lovely and the fabric is gorgeous. Is this the jacket on Page 61? The neckline/collar on the jacket in the picture looks a lot smaller than yours. Your jacket looks more like what I would have expected from the drafting diagrams.

Yes, ALY this is the jacket in the blue suit (jacket/skirt) on page 61. From the pattern picture it looks fair enough to be worn on its own but with how it turned out for me it is more of something you had wear over a dress, turtleneck top or a shell almost along the lines of a capelet. I am wearing pants sitting at waist in the picture and the jacket falls slightly over the waistband of the pants. The collar looks wider in the picture too with the decorative beads at the edges. Mine looks narrower perhaps because of the thickness of two layers of brocade and not the lightness of a linen for example. I did not alter the diagram dimensions but worked with my own sloper with just a little ease. I assumed the finished product looked like the pattern photo but I also think it is difficult to say with the sitting position and the model's hands covering part of the outfit.

Beautiful jacket and a great review. My goal is to be able to sew a project from Stylebook - someday.

Hi Jali! This is such a very attractive and beautifully crafted jacket! The neckline flatters you very nicely and seems like a pattern you could use again and again, so versatile! Thanks for the details!
