Awesome review! This is a pattern I would have passed up, because I have a pear shaped figure, and I also don't look great in jackets with these type of gathers, but with your changes I LOVE it. I may have to try this one out! great job

I like that you used a med. weight knit and not fleece as shown on the envelope pics. Much nicer end result.

Great review-thanks so much for all the deatil on what you did to get such wonderful results with these 2 jackets. I love both and am especially drawn to the deep purple one. Really, really nice work.

Love both of the jackets. They look comfortable but not too casual

I have this pattern but had not made it up because I was worried about the gathers. What a great adaptation you made. You have inspired me.
