How funny! I just pulled this same pattern out, thinking I wanted to somehow fit this into my wardrobe. I've been thinking about opening it down the front center and making it into a jacket. I really like what you did with it. And in my favorite color! is it easy to take on and off?

It is pretty easy to take on and off, I was thinking about any circumstance where you would need the zipper, and can't think of one. Opening it down the front would be a really good idea.

This looks such an elegant style - I love the neckline and sleeve shape. Great fabric choice.

What fabulous raiinwear. I really like Rucci patterns. I never thought of making this one because I'm not sure the style would suit me, but you really made it work in the rainwear fabric.

great, you have done a brilliant job

Oh, this is a wonderful garment. It's seems almost architectural with those sculpted lines--another monument to your sewing skills! Just came back to check the full-fledged review. Your seaming is meticulous. Thanks for all the construction info/details/photos.

Absolutely love the color! And a great job you did on the pattern. Looks so neat - and not your typical 'rainwear'. Great job.

Fantastic top! I never thought of it as outerwear but it is brilliant. I am intrigued to try this pattern after your favorable review and seeing your great result (and because I'm curious to see how the gusset seams are finished).

An impressive effort.

Now that I see it on you, I'm thinking even more it would work to open the front. Too bad your fabric is grabby, making your plan harder. Thanks for all your good tips!

I give you 10/10 for perseverance from what I read in your comments - I love the look of the pattern, sadly I think I need to drop a few pounds before I would look so nice on me - well done.

I love your version. I wasn't too impressed with the pattern envelope, but your top looks great!

Really impressive work -- looks great! Seems to me like the large sleeves make this pattern a particularly good choice for not-so-breathable rainwear fabric -- they could allow more air circulation than you'd get on a really fitted style.

I love it! I have a couple of the Chado Ralph Rucci patterns that I'm a little afraid of trying out. So cheers to you! And thank you for the excellent review!

Thanks for the excellent review. Your comments and photos are so helpful. I love this pattern, but admit I've been intimidated to try it. It looks great on you and your topstitching is beautiful!

What a special top! I like the gusset sleeve and all the fun seams. I might make a coat out of this, great idea on the rainwear fabric!

Thanks, I was looking at the dress version of something similar in that collection, but sounds like it's too hard for me. Looks great for you though!

Fabulous top, you did a terrific job. The style is so iconic - I really think it's one of the most beautiful garments of the 21st century!

Such a beautiful jacket, I love the style. You did an amazing job - your hard work paid off.

Great job! I wouldn't have thought of using the drizzlewear fabric. It's such a neat style!

Looks great! Thank you for all the tips and warnings! I have this in my pattern stash and want to make it. I love the shape of it. I am wondering if Rucci was influenced by Issey Miyake? Check this vintage shirt:
