Really beautiful jacket, tailored in your usual impecable style. Love the top stitching & the buttons. Thanks for the info on the vegetable ivory (this is new to me) & the tutorial.

Wonderful jacket! Your buttons are so perfect with the fabric. The button holes may have given you fits, but the end result looks quite worth the trouble. I love it!

Hhhhmmmmmm..... so, how many machines DO you have? LOL!

1. Love the jacket. 2. Wonder why I haven't made it yet? 3. Yes, I've ripped out that many buttonholes. 4. You can't have too many machines. 5. My vintage Singer buttonholer is coming in the mail on Tuesday.

Great looking jacket!

wow - that is one seriously stylish jacket.... sigh, and perfectly constructed too. My Bernina is too smart to do proper buttonholes - I hear your pain - it's got this electronic eye that gets stuck on bulky fabrics and can't move. My cheap bottom of the range Janome does a better job ...

Very stylish jacket - love the buttons. Always love your reviews. Thank you for the tips on top stitching and doing buttons on a featherweight and lining pocket flaps. Your top stitching looks impeccable.

Gorgeous! This is a stunner and looks fabulous on you. I love the fabric choice and color; perfect for the design. Thanks for reviewing it. I have it on my list so I'll be referencing your review once I start.

Beautiful as always, but I especially love the buttons. They're the perfect finishing touch.

What a beautifully tailored jacket. I love those vintage buttons. Excellent.

Aixoise said...
Splendid jacket. Thanks for the pocket flap tutorial. I'm with all who are constantly dismayed in Pfaff's buttonholes. Janome's my go-to buttonhole machine, with the Singer/Greist type as backup. Ripping out buttonholes isn't exactly a hobby, but I've had plenty of practice. I always enjoy your reviews.

Can't add anything to the well-deserved praise. Your projects are always an inspiration. Thanks for another great one!

Hello beautiful jacket! This looks absolutely flawless...even the buttonholes!

I want one like that with the silk lining. I love your buttons so much. The guy we visit on St-Hubert had so nut buttons I think. Geniously done as usual. Thank you for the tutorial. Super young looking and fashionable jacket. Very new lawyer type of look. Where is the bracelet ? ;-)

Gorgeous Jacket!! Your garments always look so well pressed, as well as well constructed. Do you have a special iron or just use a regular household iron? Thanks.

your jacket is amazing!!!thanks for sharing your techniques.

Looks fabulous - buttoned up to the top would be too severe. So, as is often the case, your solution to a 'mistake' improved the garment.

I love your jacket. Brown is a hard color for me to find where I live. It's one of my colors in the fall/winter ;D

Sorry to be so late in leaving a comment on this wonderful jacket. Your style sense and fabric/notions choices, not to mention your exquisite workmanship, are such an inspiration to me. I love those buttons! And thank you for the great tutorial. This is a crisp, classic, urban jacket. Looking forward to the skirt!

Kay how did I miss this?? Can I borrow it? Really beautiful jacket and I think it would look good with jeans even into cooler weather.
