Sandra, this is so much better that RTW. It's stunning and I can see from your adjustments that it will sit perfectly on your shoulders. Great adjustments as always.

Though living in a country known for the many rainy days, I've never thought about making a rain coat. till now. Don't know if I get to it, but your superb version and helpful review certainly make me think I could do it. And the style attracts me too. WONDERFUL!!

I don't even know where to start with my comments. You have taken this pattern that everyone loves and constructed it to perfection. Your details are like the very best of the best RTW. What an educational review. Your sewing skills are amazing.

Gosh, many thanks for the kind comments. I've been enjoying the jacket this past week, as it (surprisingly) has continued to rain. Kudos to Tasia for a magnificent pattern!! It really is a lovely style and beautifully drafted. Highly recommended, I'm already planning a second version ;)
