The fabric must have been a nightmare to sew, but having said that, the finished product is stunning. The choices you made to mitigate the various problems really worked. Looks fantastic on you. I must make this pattern.

You did it! Having seen the fabric and your garment half sewn, I can say congratulations on finishing it before it totally unraveled. It now looks beautiful and should stay together for you to enjoy wearing around! I really like the look of the black accent serged edges. Great job.

Thanks for sharing the challenges. It is tempting to only post the huge successes, and you are so productive and so creative, I thought you were invincible. Well, maybe you are invincible. The resulting jacket is quite stunning. Your pocket trick is quite clever and the resulting jacket looks terrific on you. Thanks for the review.

I love reading your reviews Ann. As always you have made something wonderful, and although it may have been longer and harder than your previous jacket, it looks absolutely stunning in the pictures. A cross between a glamorous medieval pageboy and a futuristic moonwalker!

The fabric sounds awful to work with, but your finished result is stunning.

It's a shame that the fabric is so unstable, but for however long it lasts, you made a very good save and it's lovely.

Hi Ann, what a great review. thanks so much for sharing you experience with this fabric. I have made this pattern before with great success (boucle sweater knit)', so it was really instructive to see it made up in a more "challenging" fabric. I find that matching fabric and pattern to be one of the most difficult things about garment sewing. so it's always good to see what doesn't.work. that said, it looks great on you. again, thanks for sharing! Mary T.
