They can't all be winners :/, and I'm just as interested in hearing about the patterns that didn't work out. But maybe giving the jacket some time will change how you feel about it? I know sometimes I need to have some distance before I can be objective about some of them. I love the fabric you chose, and the jacket in the picture really doesn't look that bad to me!

What do you mean, "pattern did NOT work for me"? It's too cute. CRAM it in your closet, then YANK it out in disgust a few times, and pretty soon, you'll start feeling sorry for it, and you'll say, "Well, it's not THAT bad." :o) I love your treatment on the collar AND the fact that you made the sleeves longer. On me, I don't like the sleeves ending up at the same place as the hem of the jacket, OKAY? And on these cute little cropped jackets, that seems to be right where they end. I like your version better. :o)
