It's gorgeous. It looks terrible on the pattern pic - now I want to make it. Regarding what you said about sergin seams etc - I made an unlined jacket a while back. I used bias binding to bind all the edges instead of zigzagging them. It looks so cute and wasn't that bad to do. Pinned it on so edges were enclosed and sewed it in one step. Whenever it's hanging in my office people comment on the cute green binding:)

That is so sweet. Looks great on you. Much better than the pattern envelope.

I would 'notice' you in this jacket ..I really like it and how you have styled it ...(and the colours complement your eyes). Lovely sewing Penelope.

Super cute! I love it in the plaid. Plaid and ruffles = very fun.

This is REALLY cute on you. I was worried about the jacket being boxy, but it looks great. Thanks for doing this jacket review ... and, I too have made a few of these dresses. Love this pattern, can't wait to make the jacket now.

So cute! I am almost done with the dress from this pattern, and the jacket (with ruffle) is definitely at the top of my list! I think it could use a lining, too. Yours looks great!
