Thanks again for your kind comments! I hope the review will help some of you who is considering this pattern to make it quicker. Fuzzygalore- your comment on interfacing is very much appreciated, I will be more cautious when I choose interfacing for my next project.

I hope you're feeling like it was worth all the pain, because it looks smashing. Good call on the waist button. However beware 2 layers of whisperweft don't make an armoweft - there is a significant difference in crispness between them, they're not just half or double of the same thing.

Your jacket is beautiful and your review is very helpful. Having read it, I might, in the future, attempt to make this wonderful classic design if I get more confident in my sewing skills, since I actually possess the magazine/pattern. Congratulations on your hardwork and successful outcome!

Clearly you worked your butt off on this little number. It totally paid off. Love the double breasted detail. Congratulations.

Thanks for your nice comments! Mary Nanna, yes, it was a lot of work. I don't want anyone to be scared off this pattern though. it is not hard to make, once you know obstacles. I would go with one, even two sizes smaller next time, leaving wider than normal seam allowances.

I looked at that jacket and thought, bet that was a lot of work .. and it was! Well done, it's very smart and a bargain to boot. Love it.

Oh, this is a fabulous jacket which looks impossible to sew and yet you have done such a fine job! The buttons, belt buckle and rivets(?) to tighten the belt add a very upscale touch.

your jacket is absolutely beautiful! And your review is so helpful. Thanks for the tip about the teflon foot. I will have to try one of those!
