That is one good-looking jacket! Thanks for the back picture, which isn't easy to find, it's totally worth it. Why is this a bit small? Did you pick a size by translating your US size, which is garanteed 2 sizes too small? Or did you correctly pick it by measurements, and it's the thicker wool and extra lining that's making too much of a difference?

It's so nice to see this one made up - it's one of the patterns in that issue that I really liked. Your jacket looks super on you!

Great job! Everything you make is a learning experience. The front is good (not as bad as you say) and the back is great! Maybe shifting the button as noted in an above comment may help. Anyway I would be really happy if it were mine!

Looks great, and very professional, despite your comments about the difficulties you had. Great job! And a 3 star BWOF pattern - give yourself a very big pat on the back!

omg. Seriously. That is a GREAT looking jacket. I love the pockets and the peplum in the back. The seaming details are quite nice too. Excellent job!

I love it! You made something to be very proud of. I see what you mean about it being a shade tight - but if you move the top button a bit toward centre, that would give you just the extra breathing room to get rid of the ripples. The back view BTW is fabulous: bravo! (I also very much like the other garments you have on your flickr page)
