i took some artistic liberty when it comes to the eyelets and appliqued grosgrain pieces. oh! and also, i added snaps to where the long sleeve attaches to the shoulder so that it can be removable.

Awesome!  making the sleeve removable was definitely a good idea.  I've still gotta get snaps and grosgrain if I'm ever going to get this done.. *ahem* not to mention figure out what fabric I want to use!
Have gotten distracted.. and ended up with some unexpected (and very, very GROSS) veterinary bills.. Well, the bills themselves weren't gross.. it was the problem that caused them that was gross..  but that would seriously be TMI.

Congratulations!  A great job, and it looks amazing on you!  I like the way you handled the tab at the bottom of piece 4.

You should put up a post in Completed Projects so more people will see it!

After reading all this I have to admit to wanting to do it... I haven't sewn anything that required skill in years, it would be nice to get back into it.  Maybe, just maybe, I'll take a poke through the stash and see if anything would like to come out and play  Wink

This jacket is amazing and everyone is doing a wonderful job with it.
I have one question though and I hope that it hasn't been asked before. I've seen lots of reference to the width at the waist and bust, but I was wondering what the length is.
It's probably easiest to measure on the back from the bottom of the v to the top of the "bustle".
I'm planning on redrafting the pattern for a bigger width and at 5'11" will probably need a bigger length too. If both directions need to be increased the same amount I'm just going to print out a larger pattern.
Here's hoping for the easy fix. I don't think that I have enough patience to redraft the pattern otherwise.
