I'm so impressed if this is a cheap polyester, it looks amazing! I've made this a few times but struggle with the collar, you look like you nailed it!

I am getting ready to start this project for my husband and thought I would check out the reviews. Wow, your version is amazing! Well done.

Wow, this is so wonderful! I think you need to change your sewing skills from intermediate to advanced. Love it!

Beautifully made and excellent fit (I'm so impressed with the shoulder/sleeve area which looks so spectacular!) I'm doing a suit jacket myself for my DH right now so I feel your pain and anxiety in doing another! lol...they can be the worst clients but perhaps the most rewarding too I suppose. = ) So impressed you did this out of poly, wonderful job!

Thank you all for such positive and encouraging comments. The tailoring books I referred to are: Vintage Couture Tailoring - von Nordheim: Classic Tailoring Techniques (Women) - Cabrera. I'm still waiting for the tickets to Paris.........

You did a wonderful job, echoing what others said, if this is the practice jacket,I am looking forward to seeing the next one. Good work! A labor of love. Where are you going for dinner?

Awesome jacket! You are so inspiring! I like the skirt you made too - looking good!

Fully functional sleeve vents? Wow. Haven't seen that feature in a jacket in years. Wonderful work. Nothing like pad stitching to make other projects "seem easier". I'm sure he'll get good use of such a prize.

Great job. The lapels are perfect! DH looks very proud of your work.

Amazing! So professionally made. If this is the practice jacket the "real" one is going to be out of this world. Can I ask which tailoring book you used?

Wow, this jacket looks great. I have only made shirts for my husband and only one so far. That is really a gift of love!

Ruth, did you hear that loud thunk just now? That was my jaw hitting the floor. This is just absolutely outstanding. Really, really admirable work. I'm thinkin' someone owes you a bit of fancy dinner out, some jewelry and a foot massage. Oh, and a trip to Paris.

I recently did a course on tailoring a jacket and so I can appreciate all the work that went into this. The jacket looks great and fits so nicely. I don't know that I'd ever care to tailor a jacket again, sooo much work, so good for you!

Ruth, thanks for the review, you did a great job on the jacket! I have this in my stash hoping to make one for DH when I get the nerve up - he saw a jacket he liked locally that was over $800 out of a really nice wool, I about choked realizing I could make it for less than $100! (And no, he did not buy it!!!!)
