Absolutely stunning jacket. The fit is PERFECT! I just love everything about this jacket, from the fabric and the color to the impeccable topstitching. And those bound buttonholes are super-professional. Thanks for the silk organza / fusible interfacint tip. Great idea. Agree with the other posters, you are definitely Advance.

Definitely Advanced as I understand Marfy has no instructions with their patterns. Thanks for the organza tip!

Yeah, I think it's time to move on up to Advanced. You've sure earned it, this jacket looks just PERFECT!

Very impressive.

Splendid fit. Interesting comments about Marfy's subtle shaping. It shows in the way the jacket has just the right amount of flare. Lovely work.

Love the jacket -- the crinkly fabric, the fit. Everything. Your bound buttonholes are perfect. No way you're an intermediate. If that is true, I'm a rank beginner!

Beautiful. Looks very "high-end boutique". Thanks for the organza / fusible interfacing idea!

Wonderful, fabulous jacket. What a great idea with the silk organza and the interfacing. Your patience and skill are nicely showcased.

How lovely! Your fitting is superb and your construction is impeccable. I've been mulling over a double princess seam jacket and you're encouraging me. I'll use my Pattern Master Boutique 4 sloper and draft the jacket in that. Your "instructions" will be very helpful. Thank you.

Beautiful color and style,

This is a fabulous jacket. I admire your skills in drafting your own sloper and adapting other patterns to it. Great job!

Time to move it up to Advanced. Great jacket and commentary on how you did it.

Beautiful work! I love your fabric choice. You are so clever with the fusible interfacing and organza - what a great idea. It sounds like your sloper is serving you well.

Terrific! Well done!

That looks perfect. You did a great job with those fitting issues, and that fabric is a wonderful, unexpected twist.
