Bravo! To me, this is what sewing is all about: creating something unique, that you wouldn't be able to just go buy somewhere. And you've done it beautifully. Nicely written review, too.

Beautiful jacket - not only did you make it - but you "designed" it as well. You are so creative!

I think you can upgrade your sewing skills level to "expert" after creating this beautiful garment out of a combination of patterns. Yikes! Too cute for words.

JudyP, thanks for your kind comments. I did not make the shoulder pads. I used purchased ones I bought at the Puyallup Sewing Expo at the Professional Sewing Supplies booth. She had three thicknesses; I bought the thinnest. Professional Sewing Supplies does not have a website, just shows and mail order. They carry many quality notions and tools from Japan.

Stunning, simply stunning! And what a wonderfully helpful review especially the instructions on how you made the buttons which really caught my eye since they are so original! Great job! And I don't care what you sew FAST!!!

Absolutely gorgeous. The buttons are amazing; thanks for explaining how you made them. Plus a vintage machine to go with the whole process. What a kick!

Oh, that jacket is a stunning knockoff and so beautifully sewn too. I just love how you did the covered buttons.

Beautiful job, Mary and I love the color. Those buttons -- I'm in awe!

Beautiful jacket!! So creative an chic! I'm very interested in how you made your shoulder pads. Sometimes a jacket needs a little something, but purchased pads are not right. Can you post a tip or something explaining what you did in more detail?

Your jacket looks absolutely amazing thank heavens it didn't become a tablecloth! Your review is really interesting and informative and I liked the link to your machine, I also have an old pfaff 260 semi industrial machine which is a joy to work on and copes with any thickness of fabric and goes really fast!!
