Interesting to hear your alterations requirements. Thanks for the good review; I want to try one of Loes' garments and this encourages me.

Beautiful! I was eyeing this fabric thinking that it looked nice, and seeing it made up confirms that it is in fact beaufitul fabric. Great job!

Great job! Ya know, as long as you feel great in a color and wear with flair, you'll look great too - and you do! Zig-zagging hems can often overdo them - and in fabric like this that doesn't ravel, I would suggest just stitching 1/4" from the edge, and perhaps even fusing on a bias fusible tape first to stabilize. You could even do a blind hem in this fabric - with the loft, it is perfect for that. Decrease your upper tension, and be sure to have the jump of the blind hem just barely catch the fold. Be sure to report on your Euros and REtro. Londa

I have been admiring this pattern for a long time now. Yours is so elegant and flattering! I am certainly going to try this one. I also have the Retro aging and am looking forward to making it. Go for the Euros, they're wonderful. Thanks for the review!

Tiner - I love your jacket! It looks great on you. Go for the Retro - I recently made one after having the pattern for a long time. It was one of those "what took me so long" moments - looks great and was really quick to make.

Neat pattern for a neat fabric! I'll have to relook at (OK, play with!) my stash and use your combo idea.

Tiner, I don't have this pattern yet but have specifically been thinking about it for a piece of very stable knit I have, so appreciate your comments about using it as a sweater jacket.

I would not have thought of using sweater knit for the jacket but after seeing it made up, I think it does look like a nice sweater type jacket. Thanks for the review.

love your jacket you did a great job. I think the sweater type fabric is good for this jacket. I also agree that a linen would look good for this jacket
