Londa - I am attending a 3 day sewing camp and chose this pattern to work on. Thanks for your lengthy review. I will take your comments into consideration as I prepare my pattern ahead of time. I'll let you know how it works out.

Great review. One SW pattern I'll pass upo. But you always seem to be able to rescue less than perfect patterns AND make them look good! Very nice.

Very lovely results. You have a great sense of style.

Blessings, Londa. I was almost tempted to buy this pattern, but when I saw your review I decided against it. I think I saw a new Vogue Pattern with the same neckline, so I will try to find that and sew it instead. I do like the lines of the jacket, but am not interested in remaking the pattern to make it work for me.

Personally, I think your version is much more attractive than the pattern illustration. I really love your use of fabric.

For a pattern that didn't work you still ended up with a stunning garment. I am in awe of your talent.

Wow, Londa, what a beautiful result! I'm really hesitant to try this pattern, but am totally taken with the photo on the pattern jacket! What a dilema! I couldn't possibly work that thru the way you did. That I know, without a doubt. I do thank you for sharing it all with us. Maybe I'll put it on the back burner for awhile. (Waaaay baaaaack burner 8^D)

Wow I That is gorgeous and a job well done. I love what you've done with the shirt/jacket, but this seems too much work for me.

What a terrific-looking finished jacket, Londa--and what a huge job to make it work. I can see why you were intrigued: All that unusual dart shaping! But how nice for us that someone as adventurous and creative as yourself was willing to tackle it and tell us what to watch out for.

Sewing Workshop patterns all seem so oversized and kinda 80's. It's interesting that even the newer patterns are like that. I'm looking forward to your photo to see how you whipped this one into shape.

Congrats Londa! You made it to the finish line! I have been following your thread on this project on your very fun email list. Can't wait to see the photo!

Thanks Londa, for such a complete and informative review! I am looking forward to your photo. The picture on the pattern looks so cute and tempting- I won't attempt it now because if *you* had problems, it would be a disaster for me!

It is a shame that this pattern was so difficult. It looks good from the drawing and I almost ordered it the other day. But I am petite and SW patterns seem to run huge on me. I did not want to try to figure how to adjust the pattern for all the changes I knew I would have to make.

Londa, I am so sorry that this was such a problem pattern because I so wanted to make this jacket. Am looking forward to seeing your picture.

Londa, thank you so much for this very informative review! I've read some of what you've written here and on the SW site, and was looking forward to your comments on this 'experience'! I love the picture on the pattern envelope and have the feeling that I WANT it!
