Thanks for a very detailed review. Your many hours paid off in the finished garment. Nice photos showing the back detail.

Very impressive work! I really like your fabric choice. How clever of you to notice that the peplum needed adjusting. I am also appalled when certain pattern pieces are the same for every size--that is obviously not going to work! Congratulations on your awesome jacket!

What a beautiful jacket. Your work in adding the underlining sure paid off in a quality garment. It looks great on you.

Very nice! I agree, the fabric is a real find for Joanns! Great details in your review, especially the Threads link. The dress view from this pattern looks great, too. It's hard to find a pattern for a knit sheath type dress. Thanks!

Terrific looking jacket and awesome work on this, SewLibra!

Thanks! I forgot to mention that if your lining is a different color than your fashion fabric, use the lining color in your bobbin and the fabric color in your machine when you topstitch the seams down. Even though most would think of that, the Threads article does not mention it.
