Clever use of all those embroidery stitches. Beautiful, fun jacket. It definitely does NOT look loving-hands-at-home made or hokey. The lining too is fun, like wearing fancy underwear-makes you smile all day long. Thank you for your review

My constructive criticism is to construct more just like that. Great decorative stitching; really makes it stand out. I prefer functional buttons, though.

My husband just walked by while I had your jacket up on the screen, and he stopped and exclaimed "Wow! That's beautiful!"

Love your jacket! It has lots of what I would call designer touches! I usually don't use the term RTW -- most of the clothing manufacturers don't really perform up to the standards we seem to hold for ourselves. I like to compare something like this jacket to custom one-of-a-kind garments you'd find in a boutique. Your jacket can hold it's own anywhere! (I like the stripe fabric on the inside! A wonderful touch of whimsey!)

Thanks guys! I am of the opinion just because I can do something doesn't necessarily mean I should! DJM - the pattern does have buttons/buttonholes but I changed that part. Mudcat - you are almost finished! The collar, cuffs, & band were easy to do just not the way I am used to doing things. Peggy Sagers uses a lot of these type of techniques. I took a class from her once - it was great. She is very personable.

I think it looks fine but I understand your concern. Your review has reminded me that I'm about 2/3s of the way through a jacket using this pattern. I have to admit I don't like the way she adds the cuffs, bottom band or collar which is why I haven't finished mine yet. But, I think I will now. :)

Beautiful.

Your jacket looks wonderful. I like your decorative stitching in all those complementary color to blue denim. The buttons are interesting, decorative; they catch the light and provide textural contrast. I prefer functional buttons, but that would require something of a design change. Decorative buttonholes would be one possibility. Overall, a great-looking jacket. DJM

Not hokey, home-made! and here's another phrase I love that's it's not: becky home-ec-y (hehehehe) I love the colors and think it looks RTW and expensive. Congratulations!

Great job of making this pattern uniquely your own. I like the decorative stitching and the way you did the buttons.

Doesn't look hokey, home-made, or tackey.It looks like a well made custom garment.
