You did a fabulous job on that outfit. Many kudos for staying with all those alterations. Very professional looking.

This is one SHARP outfit, and a GREAT review, as well. (You can still join the Jacket a Month, you know -- hint, hint! You don't have to actually do one every month, but just 12 in a year ... or two or three or WHATEVER. My first "jacket" was a vest -- ha!)

Charlene, what a lovely outfit. To asnwer your question about FFRP and the Swayback adjustment... At the top right hand section of Page 127, it suggests just placing the top and bottom at the fold and not to worry about the center not touching the fold line. I tried this recently and it worked fine. Hope this helps.

Kudos to you for promising yourself to have a more productive sewing year......I wish I could do that. Your outfit looks and fits very nicely. Keep up the good work!

Your pants look terrific. They fit so well. The vest looks nice with the white shirt and necklace. Thanks for including the pictures of your alterations. I always learn something new.
