I don't know how I missed this review! I love the top stitching and the color of your jacket. The style is great. I am sure you have worn it often. Wish you had another sewing class near Meggie and me!

Blue mooney, Thank you for clearly explaining how you did the shoulder adjustment. I'm certain this will help me a lot when I actually am able to start sewing again. I have had this pattern and the right fabric for quite some time and it is just so what I want to make.

Really nice outcome for your Plan "B"! Like many others, I compliment you on that lovely topstitching, it gives the jacket pizazz ;-)

This cardigan is lovely. I think the color is timeless along with the style. Your topstitching is the perfect touch. When you out-shrink this one, send it my way!

Lovely - just about finished a jacket from this pattern (will review) - this is such a classic pattern - a real must have - I have it in both size sets!!

Great jacket - love the topstitching. I was thinking about this pattern for a felted jersey unstructured jacket after seeing the cover article in this month's Threads magazine.

Pretty teal jacket! Plan B really worked well.

Persevering, to narrow the shoulder in this case all I did was shave off on the side backs and fronts above the armscye notches, gradually widening the amount I was cutting off as I approached the shoulder seam. In the end, the width of the shoulder was reduced by 5/8".

This turned out perfect! I love the five rows of topstitching. Looks like one of those garments you'll wear often. I'm sure that color looks fabulous on you!

Love the topstitching!

Congratulations, your jacket is beautiful! Can you please explain a little more if you can? 1) what you did exactly to narrow the shoulder (in your case of not using shoulder pads), 2) re: sizing - how much ease you think is suitable for bust, waist....

Love the topstitching. The color is lovely.

Ripple, the facings were the only thing I interfaced. At first I thought maybe the topstitching would be enough to stabilize the neck & front, but in the end I'm glad I interfaced, too.

Beautiful.....plan B is a winner!

I really like it--style, color and topstitching details. Did you also interface the facings?

Beautiful jacket. I really like the color and the topstitching. I'm am sure it will be super comfortable to wear made in the shrunken wool jersey.

Very nice!

This is such a lovely jacket. I really admire all those PERFECT rows of topstitching!

I love the topstitching. On a bouncy wool like that the topstitching provides a nice texture. Great job.
