I'm about to make this jacket. Yours looks lovely and fits you perfectly.

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?

Very cute! Not something you'd find hanging on the rack.

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!

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

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

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) :-))

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?
