b-Just love the look of this jacket! Can you tell us who the pattern designer / publisher of the pattern is? I would like to try this one .

Thanks for the comment, kquilter. I've made 5 or 6 of this particular jacket and love, love, love the pattern. You can order it online at http://www.petitepluspatterns.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=202. I've tried several others and they have all been wonderful. Petite Plus patterns are designed with a D cup so less altering is required. They are easy to lengthen for taller plus sizes too. There's also a DVD on how to make this jacket and it is great, although I use a combination of methods, including some from the Jackets for Real People DVD from Palmer/Pletsch with Marta Alto (buy it here: http://www.palmerpletsch.com/dvd-videos.htm). Palmer/Pletsch also sells the jacket interfacing I recommend on this site. It's the best I've used.
