Your jacket looks great. I am making my first version and if it weren't for the video from craftsy, I would have thrown this thing out along time ago. The instructions on the welt pockets and sewing the shoulder seams are horrible! I am an experienced seamstress and I am really disappointed in the sewing instructions included in this pattern.

I just completed watching the videos and received my pattern in the mail today. I've been reading the reviews online and many of them mention the sleeves are too long and that the jacket is a bit boxy. I'm considering making size L. Does the jacket curve in at the waist at all or is it a a straight line from bust to hem?

Great jacket and great review. Thank you. I bought this class some time ago but still haven't made my jacket. Your finished jacket inspires me to go work on mine.

Great job!!! I made this jacket with the Craftsy classtoo, and like you, was amazed at how easily it cametogether and what a flattering fit. I think I'll make my next one in denim - love yours!

Your topstitching looks perfect. What a good deal you found on craftsy. Great jacket.

Fab jacket. Thanks for the review. I have this on my wish list but will work up strength for the tops stitching. Thanks for the tip,

Really nice! I like the rounded edges on the collar and pocket flaps. Fits you perfectly too!
