Nikki, great review! I think view C is the most atrractive version and looks really great on you. I am curious whether you did anything to the tapestry fabric before cutting and sewing - washed, seamed, etc.??? I have seem many great tapestry fabrics but don't know how to prepare for a garment. Also did you line view C or just finish the seams on the inside? Thank you for sharing your work with us!

Your tapestry version is stunning. I can also see how well this view lends itself to a stiff fabric. Good job!

Thanks for this review! I really like the way you bluntly say what you did for each figure/fabric/pattern issue, how it turned out and what you might do differently. Even though our shapes are different, I still learned from your review. I was a bit inspired to start thinking again about using those home dec remnants at WalMart for apparell sometime. Thanks!

A really beautiful jacket, the trim is just right and the jacket fits you nicely. A good job of the sewing and a great review.

Nikki I saw this pattern today and got it at the 99cents sale at JoAnns. I came here to see if anyone has revewed it and found your jacket. You made a really pretty version. I am planning on useing some navy couderoy that is about 20 ageing in my stash and I did not have enough to make a pair of pants. In any case I see that my fabric should work well because it is still. Since I am a quilter I will likely go thru the quilting stash to make the bias contrast and will also make the ball buttons from my own fabric in a third fabric to add just a touch more interest. Loved reading your review and look forward to making up one of my own.

Nikki, your jacket is absolutely gorgeous. Your choice of fabric is just perfect for this style and the closures really add a very nice touch.

What a lovely jacket and, as usual, a wonderfully helpful review. I've never looked at this pattern before, but now I'm considering it. And I love your closures!

Nikki, that jacket is beautiful! I love the contrast. And yours fits you so much better than the picture on the model. -Ann

I love your jacket, Nikki! That steam in the bust area really worked wonders, it looks like it fits you really well now!
