This is in my list of things to make. Thanks for the review. Your jacket looks great.

Nice Job! Beautiful! Looks to me like that's about where the zipper is designed to stop, even though it goies higher - otherwise you have too mch collar bulk to have it lay nicely. Great review.....Thanks!

Great jacket, it looks so stylish for a fleece jacket.

What a great jacket, and in fleece! Thanks for the very helpful tips on instructions, zipper placement etc. I have this pattern and when I have uninterrupted time, plan to make it. The envelope photos do look like a wool, don't they?

That is amazing. I was hoping for a review like this to give me courage to try it for the next winter. I love your version, and like the others are saying, I can't believe that is fleece!!!

Nice job--and thanks for the many tips. You've given me a little more courage to try this out!

It's actually very dark navy, but photographed inside was just a blob, so I went outside and this was the result. I didn't think you could press fleece, but my steam generator iron (and my fingers) does wonders without touching the fabric.

Lovely jacket. Your seaming is so smooth I thought it was denim.

Gorgeous jacket! I can't believe it is polar fleece.
