Karmeng, thanks for taking the time for this thorough review. I am about to undertake the task of making this jacket. I appreciate that you discuss that the jacket after a few wearings shows signs that it needed to be interfaced. Also I will line it as you described--great ideas! Thanks again for this excellent review! Carla

Love the look of this jacket! What did you use for a seam finish on the insides?

Your jacket is very pretty! Great review with lots of good information too! BTW -- looks as if you have a fantastic view from your yard! I'm envious!

Your jacket looks great, and I really appreciate your review. Thanks for the little hints. Hope to make this after the summer clothing projects are completed.

I too love this pattern. Your jacket looks great. I have not thought about lining the back so your review has given me a great idea to try this next time I make up this jacket.

Sounds like a really good pattern to have. That color looks awesome on you.

This jacket does seem to be excellent "casual" business wear. Great fabric! I made LH's Casual Coat and didn't like the armscye/shoulders at all. I've stayed away ever since. Maybe I should try one of her newer patterns though. Your version looks very nice.

I'll have to look for the address to be positive. It's in the Fabric District. I have their business card around here somewhere. I will post it when I locate it.

Lovely, lovely jacket. Where is Mike's in LA? Inquiring minds want to know. ;-)
