What a beautiful way to use some of your stash! I love your construction method; it makes so much sense, considering that this is an adaptation of an applique garment.

Ann, I missed this when you posted it. It's just spectacular. I always wonder how often you wear a piece of clothing since you have so many, but I suspect this one will see the light of day quite often! It is so you.

I already commented on your blog, but I'll say it again - STUNNING! And great tips too :)

I have to say that when I saw the pattern evenlope, I wasn't that excited about the jacket but your version is super cute! It looks very nice on you!

Wow what a beautiful jacket and as others have said using fabric from your stash - I too have some fabrics that are older than my children (the oldest being 29) so just proves never to throw anything away. I keep looking at this pattern because I do love it - just waiting for a discount day on the Vogue patterns.

Gorgeous job! I'm collecting fabrics for this pattern. It may take a year or two to get it right. Your construction techniques are perfect. The pattern companies are far behind.

Just so wonderfully gorgeous! Your applique construction technique was a smart choice and use of wire in the collar quite clever for achieving the results you wanted. A lovely masterpiece!

Just gorgeous. And I like how you combined your fabrics a talent I do not have.

Oh, Ann, Ann, Ann. You used my colors, too. This is a work of art. Truly gorgeous. Thanks for all the tips in case I ever make this. If I do, I may steal your color scheme. :D

You are brave even to have attempted such a complex pattern, and the result is a triumph. The fabrics all work well together.

This jacket truly is a masterpiece, and you look great in it. How wonderful it was to have all the fabric in your stash. Love the wire technique.

Oh, Ann, how very beautiful! (and my colors, too!) I think I like this the best of any I've seen. Thank you for the good directions and rationale of why you did what you did. I'm going to get some of that wire, too!

Oh. my gosh, thanks for the wonderful review and the glimpse of your gorgeous coat, so inspiring! I love your alternate constructions method, sounds very reasonable and much smarter!

Wonderful piece, Ann. Thanks for your detailed review including a great explanation of your technique. Much better than that in the pattern. Some day I may make this one too. So interesting!
