Very nice Londa! Love your sleeves, but does it have to be an "old man's tie" or will any age man do? ; )

Well, if the man is old enough, his tie might have real lambswool "innards"! Thanks for the review, Londa. I do like your version of this pattern. Lovely fabric.

I have noticed the narrow sleeves in LH patterns that I have helped to fit. Your version has a lot more oomph than the original. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isnt this one of her earlier designs? She was still into the major shoulder pads when this was drafted. You are much better off taking her Bistro jacket and changing to the zip front neckline.

Love everything about your jacket - the fabric, the zipper and your design changes!

Beautiful jacket. It looks nothing like the envelope. Better, if you ask me!

i love your controlled embellishment. you 'hit it up' just right - not too much, not too little, moves the eye to just the right places and in the right order. (bet i'm telling you stuff you already know.) anyway. i can only aspire to this level of taste, resourcefulness and technical skill. your solution to the 'skinny sleeves' issue is stunning.

Thanks for the heads up on the skinny sleeve. And a purple lining! You're a wild one! You are creative, I'd never thought of it, but it's very complimentary. As you say, the style is ordinary and I wouldn't think to spend the money for this pattern either. But you do say she has an interesting method of putting in the zipper. So will I buy it and chalk the price up to lessons? Sounds reasonable. Please tell, where do you find satin zippers? In general I have a hard enough time just finding ordinary separating ones that are long enough and standard color. Satin is very exotic! Just the thing to go with your black ruffles. Lovely.

Sharon - since you asked, I assume it is not a violation to answer... This black satin zipper with gold plated teeth is a Riri Zipper - a Swiss line that is now available to sewers here in the U.S. Very exciting. I handle them at my website. Check my Profile for further information.
