Wow! What incredible precision on topstitching. Fabulous jacket, love the fabric and the buttons make it! Great job and sounds like a great course, too. VH review!

Oh, Dorcas! I don't know about the topstitching, which seems to be the bane of my sewing world! However, it being black, it doesn't show too much. I'm a long way from using contrasting thread!! But thank you!

Ooooo. I want this jacket! Denim brocade sounds like it would be an oxymoron but I love it!! Another gorgeous garment, Cissie.

Beautiful jacket! I bought the class but waited on my pattern to arrive and then stalled out. I've got to pick this back up, but I think I agree with you, I might be a better sewer, but I don't think I'll sew faster, but I will still give the class a try now after seeing yours!
