Your work is stunning. This one's beyond my grasp, but what a timeless jacket you've made. I've saved this review in my "Favorites" in case I ever attempt a tailored jacket ... one of my sewing 'dreams.' :)

I wish you had reviewed this pattern about two years ago when I made it!!! Nonetheless, your jacket looks great and all of your modifications worked out well.

Beautiful and yet powerful. I love the color. I bet it would make a lovely suit with pants or a skirt. It's very RTW and expensive looking.

I love this jacket, but reading your instructions I think that it is beyond my skills at the moment!. I am sure that you have lots of compliments when you wear it. Terrific job.

Excellent review. Your jacket turned out beautifully! I had much the same experience as you. I had a good outcome but I kept wondering what the $20 pattern price was for.

some very good information in your review, thanks. Your jacket is beautiful, but I don't think you told us if it makes you "powerful" or not.

Thanks for the instructive and even handed review. I am wondering if perhaps the front lining piece is cut on such an odd angle so you can use a RTW technique as outlined in Threads #108 ("Where Lining Meets Facing" by Allison Page). However, if there are no instructions to reflect this technique, the shaping is of little use.

SewVeryTall said...'ve done such a great job on the tailoring, and in writing the review. Did you have to remark your pocket placement on one of your front pieces and forgot that you had raised them 1 1/2"? One pocket looks 1 1/2" higher than the other. Or is this an optical illusion?

As you other jackets, this one is also awesome in craftsmanship and detail! If you don't minf, can you elaborate on the technique for the cap, I don't think I understood it and it seems to prodice superb results.
