Looks great on you! Love it when a muslin works out like that.

How cute is that! You've inspired me to pick up this pattern. Nice work.

Your jacket is very pretty. Could you post a link to the pattern illustration? I don't think I'm familiar with it, and it seems not to have been reviewed before.

Nice jacket. Thanks for letting us know that it works in fleece, too. Elona, it's here on PR.

I have got my eye on that pattern. I am glad it worked out so well.

This is one nice (wearable) muslin! Lucky you. I adore that color and the coat is really great. I'm not a big fleece fan, but it sounds interesting to work with. (PS: I love your haircut too)

Ohh that's sharp looking... Proof that fleece can do up-town well!

Thanks for the link to the cute pattern! Your version looks great. As to the raw edges, I saw that treatment in boiled wool all over France one winter (and shamelessly bought two jackets and one coat of that type). They are holding up beautifully, in spite of no interfacing or facings.

Fleece? I would not figure that out until you mentioned it. Very nice jacket on you!

Nancy, I have been away off and on and missed this review. Your jacket is gorgeous and I love it in fleece. Just lovely.

I love your version. I love Marcy's but in this case, I think your version inspires me to buy the pattern more than hers.

I had the same problem with the collar...I chose to cut a strip for binding. The pattern does fit well. I believe that using fabric adhesive would work better with fake fur or a longer pile fleece...The jacket fits well and is very comfortable!
