Thanks so, so much for your post. I learned a lot from your text and photos. A beautiful suit!

Great job! I really love the curved placket design here, but yeah, I think you were right to add in real pockets! Otherwise it's so impractical to have a coat without them.

Oh, I love it! You did beautiful tailoring and Rita will look smashing at the wedding. The buttons are wonderful. I too love my Chaconer.

I've had this pattern cutout for over a year and still have not gotten to sew it. Hehe... I really should finish it. Yours looks so nice!

The suit is beautiful - I always like clothes that are a bit different in style. Great review and informative blog, too.

This pattern had slipped past me without calling attention to itself, but your version of the stand collar looks so expensive!
