Well, what can I say, I even like the DOLLY PARTON view (and "Dolly Parton" is my middle name). :o) I've always admired this pattern, but I think this is the first time I've seen it made up. I LOVE your fabric. I thought it was wool! I've got a jacket lying over there in the chair waiting to go to the cleaner's, and it has EXACTLY the WRONG SLEEVE LENGTH. It just drives me INSANE, but I really like the jacket itself. I may actually get some more of that fabric (if they still have it) and use your INGENIOUS FACING IDEA. :o) I was just thinking yesterday, those sleeves either need to go UP or go DOWN. I don't really want to make them shorter. Gee, who asked me about MY jacket anyway? I love YOURS, and you wear it so well, with such a casual, elegant ease. :o)

Thank you everyone! Forgot to mention that even though this is out of print it's still being sold on the McCall's site and there are a couple of them available on eBay.

Lovely jacket and such a useful review. I probably have this one in my collection but never noticed that great pocket too. Thanks for the inspiring review.

Your jacket turned out just beautiful and you look great in it. The Dolly Parton picture is too funny :)) I'd never thought this could be a muslin, bet you get a lot of wear out of this one!

I think your sleeve alteration has worked well and all seams on your jacket are so beautiful and pressed well which left me in a state of beautiful seam fetish........

This is a simple and beautiful pattern. Your muslin turned out wonderfully. It looks great with jeans. I am sad that I never saw that pattern before. I am looking forward your future version of it. This pattern is really worth it.
