ohhh geezy, I am so late in commenting. I read your review, looked at the pictures and never told you how beautiful your jacket is. Very art full and unique. I love red on you. Well what isn't beautiful. You look radiant and I love your hair.

Annette, I love your jacket in this fabric. The collar falls softly and frames your face beautifully. I would have thought that velveteen would be too bulky, but it is perfect. You have a beautiful jacket. Enjoy. I agree with the others that your jacket is so much more appealing than the ones shown on the pattern envelope.

Amazing jacket, looks GREAT on you! I like how it looks with the buttons moved over a bit, and in a drapier fabric than on the cover. I had the EXACT same problem with the pleats fighting each other, and couldn't quite fix it either -- I guess the pleat direction has to be changed earlier in the process. Oh, I love your buttons, too!

Fantastic jacket. I am just the opposite of you. I ALWAYS read the directions. I may not necessarily follow them but I always read them and have them in front of me when constructing a garment.

This instantly gave me a feeling of old Bohemian London. I think the looser fit contributes to that slouchy old elegance that I really like, and the velveteen makes it so sumptuous. I would NEVER have pictured this outcome from the photos on that pattern envelope (which do the pattern no favors!!). YOU should be on the envelope. I agree that a slimmer fit with that generous collar would be beautiful, but it would be a totally different effect. I have a feeling that Marcy would like your jacket very much!

Annette, thanks for the great review. Your jacket is lovely. I have this pattern but haven't made it up yet. Hopefully, it will be soon. Thinking about the jacket contest -- do I need that stress?? We'll see.

Gorgeous result! & it's a Marcy - no wonder I was drawn to it! And thank you for that button supplier link - she looks like a keeper!

I love Marci's patterns. Your jacket is done very nicely. I don't think I have ever came across 33" fabric. Great job. Sewing on velveteen is not the easiest but you did an outstanding job.

Fabulous jacket. The fabric may have been difficult, but it paid off in the end. Thanks for the tip on the buttons. Great review!

Dear Queenie, when I grow up I'd love to sew like you. This is just another in the line of your beautifully designed jackets, and it is a winner. The velveteen fabric is so lovely and the style is just gorgeous on you. You can arrange and wear a jacket neckline like no one else. I think back on your white linen and all other jackets worn with real style, and this jacket ranks among the very bests. Your workmanship and knowledge is amazing and your willingness to share is appreciated.

Wow your jacket is gorgeous! I hate the picture on the envelope. Vogue needs to have you advising them on showing off their patterns.

Wow! This is a stunning jacket: The style, the fabric, the buttons, EVERYTHING about it is great. Just goes to show that an "ordinary" looking pattern can become extraordinary in the right hands. Thanks for the tip about your button supplier.

Fabulous! A really amazing and unique garment. The fabric is gorgeous. And thanks for the link to your button supplier.

Another jacket? You are quite the productive sewist! The fabric looks soft - but hard to sew, especially in a short width! Nice work and again great buttons:-)
Christas said... (1/3/11 9:51 PM) Reply
Annette, that is one very stunningly GORGEOUS jacket! WOWZA! I love it. I am also drooling over those buttons. They are so unique and pretty. This pattern didn't appeal to me as pictured on the pattern envelope, but you have taken it to a completely different (and more stylish) level with your amazing fabric choice & sewing ability. You forever reign as the "Jacket Queen"!!! :-)
