SO beautiful! The piping is a great idea and looks fantastic.

I'm having trouble with the photos - they are all listed as private on Flickr. Too bad because I like the preview photo and your other jacket is TDF.

I'm making this jacket today and thought I might check here first. You did an absolutely wonderful job and it fits you very nicely. You are definitely one of the most professional seamstresses on PatternReview.

You're so talented, I can't imagine whipping this up in 2 days with all the alterations you made. Great job. The jacket looks gorgeous.

Absolutely beautiful and a very helpful and thorough review. Thank you for the tip for the back of the bound buttonholes. Have you considered putting that in the tips section? (if it is there already I apologise... I did not see it when looking on Tuesday...can you guess I am doing bound buttonhole practices this week?)

Looks great, and fits you perfectly! I loved your purple jacket at the ASE show - the model was right in front of me in line.

Your jacket is amazing! It's too bad this pattern is OOP.

It's gorgeous! I love all the details you included. Great tip on neckties - I'll definitely be using that trick. I also LOVE the bound button holes!

Thank you for this well written review. I especially love the tip about using the ties. You do an excellent job of describing your techniques, clear and concise.

Very beautiful jacket, I love the details and I have some very similiar buttons that I scored in a thrift shop. Now all you need is some driving gloves and you're good to go.

Absolutely beautiful - all of it. I would put a long-sleeved turtleneck top under this and wear it all winter.

I have always thought the picture on the envelope looked ridiculous and costume-y and I never considered buying it. But I've completely fallen for yours and now I've bought the pattern too! Amazing, beautiful work, gorgeous jacket. Hope mine turns out half as well!

This is so lovely! I love the rounded collar and the back pleats. How neat that you were able to use your antique buttons. They are perfect for this project. You have sewn a beautiful jacket!
