Lovely cozy cardi jacket, so chic. Yes, I love embellishment but McCalls went so over the top as to obscure the lines of this one. I too have had the same problem with their sleeves. Why do they think my wrists look like my ankles?

Lovely Chanel style jacket. You did a great job matching up the stripes!

Thanks for the review. I had looked at this pattern a few times in sheer amazement at McCalls' ridiculousness, wondered about those "good bones," but never got around to finding out. Always good to find another multiple cup-size pattern. Yours looks great, very Chanel and not a "foofaraw" in sight.

Really nice jacket. I agree that the DIY "foofaraws" (great word!) are a bit over the top, but your interpretation results in a classic Chanel-style jacket. Thanks for the review. I'd never have looked at this pattern, but now might add it to my Chanel knock-off collection of patterns. (Can't have too many!)
