Beautiful on all counts--fabric, styling, workmanship. I hope she loves it and wears it for a long time! Great review, too.

Beautiful jacket. Your "design details" give it an edge and a uniqueness. How do you double the thread in the bobbin?

Doll clothing for sure, size 0 -- that is so small! You are so thoughtful, and talented, to make her something so nice!

Your friend's jacket turned out extremely well. I know how hard you've worked on it, and it was well worth all the effort you put into it.

I bet DD's friend will wear it often and since you now have the sizing worked out will commission, beg, bribe you to make more! Looks like a great job in every way.

Aixoise, I should have explained in the review that I filled one bobbin with thread and then threaded both threads on a new bobbin and wound them at the same time. I wondered if it would cause problems stitching but it worked just fine.

This is beautiful, Patti, and I LOVE the button placement. I know she will love such a chic and timeless jacket.

This is beautiful! There may have been some bumps along the way, but you'd never know it to see this lovely jacket. I really like your idea of the double thread, top and bottom, for topstitching. :o)

What a thoughtful mother and caring friend you are to make such a lovely jacket. I love the angled pockets, great idea. I know what you mean about info overload sometimes. I too have every jacket book possible and find it hard to commit and just do it.

Patti, this is a beautiful jacket. What a wonderful gift for your DD's friend. The fabric is lovely and will be perfect for so many outfits -- casual and dressy.

What a beautiful jacket you have made!!! All of you hard work paid off! It looks amazing on her!

A beautiful jacket! All your hard work did pay off and it looks great. I'd never heard of double tread in the bobbin so another tip learned. Thanks.

You did a fabulous job!. Your daughter's friend is lucky to know you. Thanks for including the pictures of the fit of the two muslins. Quite an eye-opener, don't you think? You were very smart to go to the trouble of fitting the jacket before you cut into the fashion fabric.

Thanks for your anecdotal notes on your journey of making this jacket. I think I'll buy the pattern and go look at linen today! I love a challenge. Wish me luck.
