Sophie if you read my review carefully I did still recommend it - with modifications. I would have liked to read your review.

To rate a pattern by how well the style suits you is deceiving. Please give it a try. I have sewn the pattern myself and found the style very flattering,with well written instructions. Glad it turned out well for you.

I used light weight whiperweft, ironed on very carefully throughout the whole jacket.

Dear Val, I'm trying boucle for the first time, could you suggest the best fusing material to use? Virginia

Debra, yes I did take out the waist seams a little bit - my usual adjustment, but then when I undid the additional vertical darts that are part of the original front of the pattern it gave the jacket a more 'chanel' look. You are very observant!

The pattern photo also looks more fitted at waist than what you ended up with....did you adjust that at all? I do like what you ended up with, but sounds like you had to work at it!

What a surprise to see this in the review! I wore this jacket, in the orginal style, this morning to a meeting. It is made out of a suiting fabric with a rather hard finish lined in charmeuse. There are 4 buttons down the front and buttons on the sleeve with an actual working buttonhole. The pattern is great and you made a marvelous save!

You did a great job to save your jacket from being a wadder. It looks very up to date and classy.

I think it is very pretty. I especially like your trim choice but regret that the fabric was frustrating for you.

Congratulations on a creative and successful save! Adapting to the given parameters is what creativity is all about.

It's a cute pattern, I'm sorry it didn't work for you. Still, your persistence paid off. Your jacket is lovely and the trim detail is perfect. It will set off any outfit, casual or business, that you wear it with. Good Job!
