Thanks for posting this - your jacket is beautiful - I just got the PMB software - And it is WONDERFUL - I've made a skirt and blouse - and you are right no more fusing to get a perfect fit - Thanks for the great links that you've provided for everyone.

Kempcor, thanks! I've had the software for about 20 months now. I've been comfortable with the software from the start, but my comfort level with any software is enhanced by the fact that I've been working in the (computer) industry for>20 years. It does take quite some time to understand how each measurement and setting affects the others, and I can't say that I'm completely there yet. A good set of body measurements is of utmost importance, and those measurements must be taken the way the program expects them to be taken. You might want to try out the demo version of the software, or buy one of the Click & Sew CDs to see if you like it. Also, there is some discussion of this software in the PatternReview message boards, if you want to read more opinions.

You do very nice work. How long did it take you to learn to use the software and feel comfortable with it?

Terrific job and great fit. (I don't think any of the photos look goofy.)

Very flattering jacket on you -- great fit and professional-looking tailoring details. Thanks especially for the welt pocket link -- I've bookmarked it and want to try it myself.

Thanks for showing us the pictures of the jacket on you, even if you felt goofy :) What a great, great fit you've acheived! I've used Judy Barlup's single welt pocket technique too (it was featured in Threads quite a few years back), and I love it too!

Lovely jacket. You did an excellent job with the plaids, windowpane buttonholes, the whole thing. Looks very good on you.

Thanks! This was fun, and I'm ready to try again. I'm having a hard time remembering that you've got to have something besides jackets in your wardrobe!

Wow, your jacket is beautiful. I've yet to get a successful garment for my upper body on PMB. Your results have inspired me to try again soon.
