AthenaCrafts: I mean a size smaller than the measurements call for. If you usually do that (I do) then a size smaller than your usual one.

Hi - Thanks for your comments .Can you please clarify, do you mean one size smaller than I usually wear or than the pattern measurements call for. Typically I wear a 16 or 18 but by the measurements to get my bust on this pattern call for a 24. Thoughts? Should I cut a 22 or 16? Help! Thanks.

The jacket looks so great over your McCalls dress you just review.

Great jacket and your fabric is luscious. Thanks for the heads up on the sizing. I have fabric picked out for the shorter version and hope to get to it soon.

Ann, thanks for reviewing this great pattern which is usually hidden in the pattern book under "vogue woman"... Huh? This is in my que. I appreciate your advice on sizing. Beautiful jacket (fun dress too!)

Your long jacket turned wonderfully well. I love the color especially with your dress.

I never would have thought that pattern would produce such an elegant coat! It's beautiful on you!

This is a great pattern for this fabric. The look is smart and elegant. You need those long kid gloves to top off the outfit.

This looks so attractive in the pattern photo - yours looks great, too, very dramatic. The fabric sounds very cozy.
