Nice jacket! Does the back fit without any alterations? I can get the front to look good, but not the back! And I LOVE your fabric weight. That is too cute.

My problem with such inexpensive(?) pattern weights is that they generally locate themselves right on the cutting line!

I just adore your pattern weight. Mine tends to jump on the tissue and tear it to shreds, or drape herself across the instructions. Your jacket is lovely. Did you find the sleeves tight across the back above the elbow? Some sewists complained about this. I made this jacket years ago for my sister in a deep blue wool crepe but I lined the sleeves. She loves it so I just made her another, fully lined, out of a gorgeous spongy Sawyer Brook wool. Have yet to make it for myself. Yours is giving me motivation. I wonder if anyone has tried making this in a knit?

Love your jacket! I like the length on you, very flattering. Does the pattern run true to size? Might be my next purchase. Like I need another pattern.

Thanks everyone! Alas, it is true that my pattern weight also likes to freelance as a paper shredder and my husband disagrees that she is "inexpensive", but she is cute and determined to assist somehow! I made this is in a large and find it very roomy. The sleeves are a tad narrow but yet comfortable and probably help create a slim line for the arm. I'm not good at altering much but since it is such a loose fit, I think it hangs well in the back (maybe I just don't know better). Anyway, I think it's a great "easy to whip up jacket" for work and plan to make a couple more.

The jacket is very nice! I do not have a pattern weight: I have a pug that dashes in grabs whatever pattern pieces she can grab and dashes back out again.

Love the pattern weight. I have a couple of those too. The jacket looks really nice. It is a pattern in my stash.
