Yep, I was right - it does look even better on! Buttons are perfect.

Your jacket is lovely and looks great on you! Never ask your kids how anything looks until they're past 30! After that they will also think you're a lot smarter than you used to be too. ;>)

This is adorable. I don't think anyone under thirty can understand the appeal of a jacket like this. The younger people at my work never seem to understand why I make some of the things that I make.

It's a very nice jacket and the construction looks really good to me.

Definitely perfect buttons Nancy ! Show your kids the $800 Burberry jacket that I think this pattern was styled on.

This is a great jacket! Gotta love the kids - my daughter still says stuff like that to me and she's thirty! Love the how nice the inside looks also.

I think your jacket looks great! I have this pattern and am lookiing forward to making a jacket from it. I've learned never to ask my kids if they like a particular garment--they'll let me know if they do or don't without me asking :O !

Nancy, it's fabulous !!! The colour and style are perfect and a few nice buttons will make this one "pop". I've learned never to ask my DD's opinion too .... they mostly knock the wind from my sails :)))

If I were you, I wouldn't ask the kids' opinion again! It is adorable and so professionally finished.

Great jacket! You will get complements from people who know better! Listen to your husband.

I love that jacket on you. And I love the way the inside looks as much as the outside. Your kids are nuts. Have you tried it on with the beige/taupe pencil skirt of a few weeks ago? With a slim knit top I think they'd be killer together.

I think the jacket looks wonderful on you! I'm so glad you shared it with 'us' as we truly love to see what you've been sewing.

At age 18 your daughter is not allowed to have fashion opinions. :) It does look great. Kids. Sheesh.

I agree it's looks great, DH is correct.

I second Donna's opinion - it does look great! I bet it even looks better on.
