Thanks for reviewing. I just dug this pattern out of the stash and you are the only person with a review on PR. I like it on you and will go ahead with making it. Thanks for the comments on the sizing and the sleeves. I have short arms but will double check because I do want it to come to my wrists. Thanks again.

It looks great on you, and that is an excellent way to use stretch denim. Thanks for posting your review - I want to use this pattern to replicate a jacket I saw in a store, and I hope to figure out how to add a lining to it.

Nice job! I'm working on a Connie Crawford pattern now and the sleeve is SO SHORT! I think it's a CC thing.

I didn't lengthen the sleeves because I assumed they'd be long enough--I never have the problem of too short sleeves in RTW! I'll leave them as they are in this version. Thanks for the comments! The zipper instructions were not the greatest, IMO, so I just made it work on my own.

Very cute pattern and looks good on you...inspires me to try a jacket. (Zippers still scare me!)

Very nice. Classical and modern in the one bundle.

Nice jacket. Did you have to lengthen the sleeves?
