      Thank u - I am proud of the jacket really - it turned out well - but i was seriously unhappy at the dress - didn't hang at all like the pattern pic intimated - it hung straight down - with no give. I think I might just try it cut on the bias to see what happens. Cut on the straight it hangs in what I can only describe as a tube!
      And not a very attractive tube for one of my size either!

      thank u - if u see my other posts u will see my reservations about the pattern - and i cannot understand the US sizing either - not easy on this pattern!
      Thanks Jan

    Lovely jacket. Am I remembering correctly that you've changed the neckline from the buttoned-on scarf/collar to more of a cowl neckline? The sleeves look exactly the same as the original.

    I'm so impressed with your ability to copy that jacket, and the fabric you've chosen puts a completely different spin on it. So nice!

      sorry to disappoint u - i didnt copy the pattern - i bought it from Evadress - but I wouldn't say that the patterns are particularly user friendly. Of course it could be that me trying to get to grips with US pattern instructions/wording - but definitely I would say this pattern is not for an inexperienced sewer. It leaves a lot for the maker to work out for themselves. it just shows how women years ago understood a lot more about sewing their own clothes than a lot of us do now!
      It expects you to know, without any guidance, how to line the jacket and various other little bits which i found particularly badly expressed.I think women years ago must have all been excellent home dressmakers and in some small way - its a pity that these skills have been lost so much- speaking as one of those trying to keep it alive in school!

        Not disappointed at all. Your jacket is quite beautiful, and expresses your own personal touch.
