you look great! i love the color on you. i am happy to see your review, i would like to know , do you think a zipper could easily be put in the front opening or would that be to hard? i would also like to know if you feel the the pattern ran true to size?

I agree with Amanda that you've brought this pattern to my attention with your great jacket. (I also *need* more patterns like I need another hole in my head (as my dad always says) :-))

First of all, that color is beautiful on you. The jacket looks great - love the shaping from the inverted pleats. Great job.

Oooh. This pattern turned out even better than I thought. Great looking outfit? How dropped are the shoulders on the pattern?

Thanks for all of the super nice comments on my project! ggexpansive - I think a seperating zipper could be put in pretty easy between the garment and garment facing. I think the pattern may be true to size but I can't be sure because my body is a little strange...I have to cut out patterns one size smaller than my actual measurements to get a better fit. lmg - The shoulders are dropped about three inchese lower than normal. Thanks again for the comments and questions!

Love this look on you and have since decided to make it for a hip 19 yr old granddaughter in a brown foiled croc ALOVA fabric. She is petite and is full busted (3 1/2 inches more than the high bust measurement). She is 5 ft. (38-30-36). Have not sewn for her before. Her measurments call for a 16 but think I will go with her high bust measurement of 34 1/2 or she will swim in it. Looks like it will provide enough room in the bust and shoulders. What do you think?
