I've been looking forward to seeing a review on this one as I have been tempted to buy it numerous times. Your treatment of the lapels is a clever idea.

Wagtail, this is just lovely on you! You did a fantastic job. Like many others have said, I, too, have this pattern. You are an inspiration. Thank you, Laura

Lalena, Thank you and everyone, for your lovely comments. Re. the fabric, it's hard to describe. Its a cotton/synthetic, with a built in very tiny weave which form squares, and every alternate square is shiny. The cotton content would give it its slight crispness, which I think is necessary if you want the collar to sit like the picture on the photo. A softer fabric would be more drapey, and the bit around the neck would lie flatter. After wearing the jacket, I now realise I should have corded the buttonholes, as there is no interfacing, due to the two layers which are not joined.

Wagtail, I echo all the other comments about how beautiful your jacket is! Can you make some comments on what kinds of fabrics you would and would not recommend for this jacket? Your fabric appears to have body, and thus the collar hangs in a crisp way. Do you think a softer fabric would work, or would it be too droopy for the collar?

I have been thinking about whether I should get this pattern or not, and after seeing yours, I have decided to get it! Great to see it goes with denim very well and I may even want to crop my hair just because you and your hair style look great in it.

This looks wonderful! I bought this pattern for the pants, hoping to make the jacket when I'm more skilled. Great work!

What a lovely jacket. You look fabulous in it. Love the rolled hem finish on the collar.

This is fantastic. I'm glad to see your review because it inspires me to make the pattern, which I already own.

Just echoing others: this top looks fantastic on you. Would be interested in knowing what type of fabric you used: it seems to be a perfect weight. Thanks for tips on sewing, especially the serger info.

An absolutely fabulous piece of work! I love it on you. The colour is great and will be very versatile. It definitely looks like a designer piece and I love your observation about this particular style - normal but different. Very! Great work!

Looks fabulous from the front, back, opened, or closed. Excellent job on this. Gorgeous fabric color and finish, too (looks like a slight sheen, maybe?).

In answer to imsewcrazy, I have added a paragraph to my review re. the collar. As this is my first ever posting, it took quite some time to do and somehow I didn't have the paragraph in the brackets. Hope this answers your question. Thanks for all your lovely comments

Wow. A great looking designer jacket. You've given me even more encouragement to tackle this jacket.

It's fabulous. Well done. It works well with jeans, too.

I love it buttoned up on you. It really looks wonderful. I chickened out on mine and left off the pockets.

This jacket is fabulous and looks great on you! I have this pattern and will one day work up the courage to try it. You give me inspiration! Can you tell me how you finished the edges on the collar? Is it serged with a rolled hem?

Your version of that jacket is wonderful. I have the pattern as well. Your review is very inspiring. You look gorgeous in that jacket. You did an excellent work placing the buttons and button holes.

This turned out looking very expensive, very attractive, and very wearable without being "Issey" weird. You mastered it beautifully and tempt me to try it.

Fantastic job! It looks great worn both closed or open. I really love the look of this jacket.

So very helpful a review, you are sending me to the pattern store... I have wondered about this blouse since it hit the books. Your jacket/blouse looks fabulous, take a bow, BRAVO!

Beautiful jacket. I made mine of handkerchief linen and just love it. I have changed the back belt by cutting it shorter and sewing two buttons on top. I like this better than the ties.

Very impressive. This looks like a true designer item and you look very sharp!
