Doesn't look like the wrong fabric to me! It looks beautiful on you.

Thank you for your helpful review - I'm considering this pattern, & your comments about the fabric are definitely helpful. Although I think your jacket looks great in the fabric you used!

SCADmum - Look at the drawing schematic; you can see the shape of the princess seams. The jacket also has side seams. All seams are lapped, with raw edges. I think the easiest place to add pockets would be at the seam the attaches the extended lapel. The bottom of the lapel is not stitched down. You could add the pocket there. A trickier, but more integrated place would be the bottom front edge of the princess seam.

I Love the jacket. The one thing that puts me off is lack of a pocket. Is there a side seam where I could add one? I see there is a shoulder princess seam that could potentially eliminate a side seam. I love the fabric. You did a great job.

This is beautiful - you may have used the "wrong" fabric but it turned out just wonderful. Bet you'll get lots of compliments

You look great in this beautiful jacket. I love your fabric choice. You have done some wonderful sewing and alterations here! A lighter fabric might hang completely differently, so you could sew another and get an entirely different jacket. Double pleasure!

Your jacket looks great in this fabric! I think it's a very good choice and more useful in the heavier weight.

What a lovely elegant jacket. I think the material makes it. You're making me want to buy this pattern.

What beautiful fabric for this great jacket. You look wonderful in it. I bought this pattern because it's a little avant garde for my wardrobe but still with classic lines. Thanks for the sleeve alteration tip as well.

Based on the envelope photo and line drawings, I'd never have looked twice at this pattern. But your interpretation is beautiful and eye-catching. It's a lovely look on you, and the fabric adds so much interest. I hope to see more of your reviews.

I really like this pattern and I think your coat is lovely and fits very nicely. Thank you for the great picture of the sleeve piece showing the alterations.
