I love your jacket! The fabric is perfect & the stitching you added really makes it special. I have this pattern & have been in a bit a quandary about making it b/c of problems encountered by other sewists & you have addressed all the issues that were plaguing me! Thanks for a great review.

This is a very nice looking jacket. I don't know what a two-step stitch is, though. Perhaps you mention it on your blog. I will go check it out. :)

Amazing. From the hole-y fabric to felting to the stitching...this is just fantastic.

This is a simply thrilling jacket. I love the saga and how you shared it in your review and blog. Funny too. Since you are constitutionally incapable of sewing anything quickly you might want to check out the slow sewing thread for tortoises. Why sew quickly when you can turn out such personal and impeccable work? Thanks for documenting your process in your photos. Helpful.

I love this jacket and the decorative stitching. I especially like you method with the collar seam. I have also boiled wool, but used a woven and like the result. Yours is an inspiration to try again, especially as i was gifted a lot of wool that I want to use up.

Love your version of this jacket and I am in awe of someone brave enough to felt their own fabric. Fantastic result! Re the pattern, I have made this jacket too, lengthened to a short coat, and I absolutely love wearing it. The width of the sleeves is perfect as far as I am concerned, just right to go over my Lagenlook tops. I have several more pieces of boiled wool and have ben looking around for patterns, but I haven't found any better than this one. The only thing I will change next time is to make the collar wider, and I think your treatment of the shoulder/collar seam is brilliant.

Wonderful. The collar detail is a great improvement and all your "extras" really enhance the design.

Love your jacket and the mods you made to improve the fit. But I perused the rest of your photos and was wowed by the dyed and embellished tank tops! I found your blog entry for the fish shirt. Where (month?) can I find more?? Thanks.
