Love the photos of all your capri jackets.

As usual, most professionally done. I am in awe of those matched plaids. Excellent review.

All of your jackets are just great and you look so good in them. Good job!

Beautiful jackets, and those matching stripes are amazing.

Just beautiful. Your versions appear to be more tailored than the pattern photo. They fit you perfectly too.

Beautiful, beautiful work Liana. I especially like the first short jacket pictured. the different ways you've used this pattern is inspiring.

I edited this and got the other 2 links to work. Yay! Deepika, the FFF skirt is from Heather Claus at Patternshowcase. It stands for Fast, Fun & Funky skirt, and is a very simple knit skirt. I really like it.

Liana, I saw your other photos. What is the FFF Skirt? All your outfits are smashing!

You should send Loes your photos to use on her pattern envelopes. Absolutely inspiring!! You matched the plaid so well. I could only see the pony print photo--you're a walking advertisement for Loes' designs. This is on my wish list. I'm going to the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Worcester, MA next month and hope to be able to pick up this and other patterns. You've inspired me. Thank you.

marya, Thanks for your very flattering comment! I'm speechless... Thank you everyone for your very kind words. I'm just so pleased if I can get a pattern to fit me, and I like it, that I tend to make it a LOT of times. It is kind of amazing that no one ever notices it's the same jacket, except once in a while, and it's always another sewer! I think we analyze style lines as well as seeing the overall effect.

Wow! I would not have thought this jacket was the Capri Jacket. I like all the jackets you have made. Excellent job matching. Thanks for sharing this. I have never thought I would like this pattern but after seeing it made up several ways and several types of materials, I am truly impressed. Adding to my wish list.

I loved seeing all the different versions of this jacket you've made. Each one looks so different, it's amazing they have come from the same pattern! My favorite is the short plaid jacket with the fringe.

Wow Liana, I wish that your sewing tips and techniques could be included in the sewing instruction sheets. Imagine how much closer to successful we'd be! You're a wonderful resource and an inspiration. Thank you

Anne, I've tried to fix the links, but if you get to the one, you can navigate around in that site, and there are quite a few. Sorry. I've never gotten any of these links to work before at all.

Deepika, I haven't lined any of these, but I plan to line the next long version I make and see how that works.

Very attractive. Love the plaid in soft colors.

Liana, I never would have considered this jacket. I agree that the placement of the buttons is unappealing. But after seeing your version, I may reconsider. Great review! -Ann

Very nice, & like the short-version suit as well. (I can only see 1 of the other pictures.)

Wow - great looking jacekt, both versions.
Deepika said... (3/19/04 6:41 AM) Reply
Liana, this is amazing. Looks very tailored! Did you line any of the jackets you made from this pattern?

Liana, your jacket is fantastic, and I am awed by the stripe matching.

Great matching! Very nice jacket, you'd never know there is no interfacing..
