This is great on you - color, fit and style. Sadly, it makes me realize that with my broad shoulders I can only get away with it if I make it without top button like another reviewer did. Your knit binding is a terrific idea.

Beautiful, thank you for the tips and hints, I traced the pattern today thank you for the close up of the collar, it helps. Love the use of the knit trim.

Cute jacket. I like your idea of using knit binding to neaten the facing edges.

You got a perfect fit! Lots and lots of wonderful detail. I especially love how you used the knit fabric to bind the edges of the facings. Just the right designer touch.

I'm going to try a muslin made from used Dockers pants ripped up and you give me pause over whether to line a muslin or not. I see the result without is admirable!

I've been waiting for you to finish this to see if I wanted to tackle it, and thank you, Dawn, you've added one more thing to my list. Great color on you, and I love it with the rest of the wardrobe.

That berry is a gorgeous color on you, and I love the finished jacket. Thanks for the idea about the knit binding to finish an unlined jacket!

Wow, great job on this jacket! Thanks for the photo of the collar and stand...I kept thinking I had done something wrong when it went together like that! I had never seen a collar stand like that, and the directions just confused me more!!
