Heather, Thanks for writing (read several times!): this is great on you. Maybe I'm not the proverbial "shrpest knife in the drawer" but I sure would be grateful if you'd share what that note is. :)

That's a really kool jacket and the color is beautiful on you. Great choice of buttons! I have a couple of 60's coat patterns- think you just got me inspired!

I really like your interpretation of both of these styles! It looks like a very flattering coat, without bulkiness. You look great in it

Heather, just a lovely jacket that suits all eras. Present, yes. 60's, yes. I can also see the 40's war era influence in the soft lines of your lovely swing jacket. And you've chosen another jewel tone, in which you look so beautiful. This jacket is a major success. -Lily

Nice job with a neat pattern. I love those Cynthia Steffe jackets, too. There was a green one in the fall or winter line that I really wanted.

Heatherrique, you've done a great job here and this swing jacket looks great on you! Choosing a really 'testing' pattern has enhanced your sewing skills, I'm sure. Good luck with the contest.

Ha! I like Christina's comment. For that matter, never it never went away in the first place. This is a beautiful jacket, the end results being very much worth your efforts. :o)
