Your reviews have been helpful, as this one is--even without a photo-- and I'm considering making this jacket, utilizing my ample slinky stash. Looks like this pattern will help reduce it. Thanks for the encouragement that I needed.

YOur projects always inspire me to do them Barbara ( I think we have the same build(ish)!. This is next on my list with a EOS knit I have. Looks great on you.

I think the pattern was designed for fleece. Your jacket will be beautiful!

Barbara, I am wanting to make this jacket an outerwear jacket. How do you think fleece would work?

Thanks. I've been debating whether or not to get this pattern and you helped me decide. I need to use up some fabric too, so I'm killing two birds with one stone. I'll let you know how it turn out.

AnneM - I used a polyester/rayon "eyelash" knit purchased last year from Emma One Sock.

I am so honored by your kind compliments! MaryBeth - Johanna's right - this jacket does not require a lining. And it doesn't seem to cry out for one. It's very simple, which for me adds greatly to its appeal.

Great jacket- I made one in chenille knit and made the mistake of putting in the pockets- they really drag it down so I have to serge them off. MaryBeth, it doesn't require a lining- the standup collar in back folds in to make a facing, and that's all it has. Very simple and flattering!

Very nice! I hadn't really considered this pattern for myself before. What is your fabric?

Lovely color. This fabric required a lining, right? What did you use?
