I like the jacket a great deal and will plan to make another one in a different fabric. The pattern was drawn for a 5'7" person and I am 5"3", so I shorten the sleeves one inch. They are still too long, so the next time I will shorten more.
I ran out of fabric, so added in the front of the sleeves and the collar. That actually made a nice addition. I used a self made poly brocade fabric bias trim. I top stitched in a decorative stitch like she shows in her book. It went on very easy with the using her stay tape first. It think the fabric I chose was a little heavy and it feels like a blanket, but maybe when it gets cold and I use it, I will appreciate it.
