I love your jacket. I picked up the pattern last night. I never gave the pattern a 2nd look until I saw your completed jacket on your blog. You sold me on the pattern! I will definitely be making this jacket.

I've been eyeing this pattern because of the bust cup sizing also. Thanks for sharing your beautiful jacket with us.

Really beautiful - I love the jacket in this fabric, and the vintage feel is really nice.

Lovely jacket, great review. I have this fabric - so nice to see it made up so successfully. Thanks so much for the review.

I saw this pattern when it came out, liked it, and then forgot about it. Given that I always have to adjust for a full bicep and bust, I think I need to add this one to my stash based on your review. Love how yours turned out!

Beautiful jacket! I love the pleats in the back. And how wonderful that you didn't have to make any fitting adjustments. Will definitely be looking for this one.

What a fabulous jacket! I can imagine it on you and see it beautifully complimenting dresses and skirts on you. Thanks for your great review.

Great jacket and equally great review. Fabric and pattern - excellent match. And good call with the front lining too. now, I'm off to sew....

Your jacket looks smashing! I love the style - you are right, sort of vintagey. And I was surprised to see that it is a Very Easy Vogue pattern. Maybe I should try it!

Pretty jacket and thorough review. I can commiserate. I, too, have bodacious bicepts. I love that term! Thanks, Laura
