Sarah, you go, girl! Great work on the jackets and on the review. This pattern has been ageing in my stash, just waiting for me to develop the patience to go to work on it...gotta get it in line to make! ;)

Thanks so much everyone. Regarding that Burda skirt pattern I used in the cinnamon tweed combination, it's a real winner also. If you search JLG's reviews, you will find a good one on that skirt, and here's another one:

The pattern sounds wonderful - great review! I really like your cinnamon suit. I guess it's cinnamon coloured in real life? It looks like a lovely berry colour on my monitor! Thanks for telling us what the skirt pattern was - I was about to ask. Very tempted by that skirt pattern.

Gorgeous jacket, in fact the whole outfit you've reviewed is just amazing! I LOVE the tweed jacket -- just beautiful! I'm in awe of your sewing skills!

Great suit, great review. I can see why it has become THE jacket pattern for you. Oh - I saw your wonderful tweed version, too. You are an excellent sales tool for these patterns. Two reviews of 1945 in one week - it's s message from above: Karla, order this pattern.

I love both of your jackets, but especially the cinnamon one. It's hard to see that they're from the same basic pattern! Wonderful sewing and great review too!
