Lovely jacket. I just love her patterns, and this one looks great on you.

Thank you so much for this review and the link to your blog. It looks great and I love the fabric. Your tips (like the clear elastic on the folded edge) are so helpful.

Love your jacket! Great review. Thank you for all of the pointers that you learned from Loes. They will help me greatly in the future.

Love your jacket! No quite sure if I understand how you raised the shoulder. I checked your blog, (great) and saw the "after" photo, but would love to see the "before" as well. Sorry to be such a "deunce" sometimes I tend to overthink! Thanks

Nancy, your jacket looks wonderful. I, like you feared I would look dated in LH now. However, you have proven me wrong. Time to pull out the Garbo pattern. I like your idea of the clear elastic around the neck.

Nancy, you have a winner here with your new jacket! I plan to try this alteration on a Garbo too; thanks for posting.

Nice jacket. What a treat to be able to go to LH's shop and get pointers. The fit looks great.

That's a very interesting shoulder alteration. I usually have to lower the shoulder point. I'll try this on my next muslin. Lovely jacket! You got a PERFECT fit.

What a lovely jacket, Nancy! I LOVE the perfect line you got with Loes' unorthodox shoulder alteration.
