Lindsay, you have all the reasons in the world to proud of this jacket. The fabric choice is excellent and very creative. Do you wear it with brown dupioni pants ? Lovely, really. I would love to see pictures of you wearing it !

Lindsay, I gotta tell you--the fabric is awesome! But those trims!!! They really make the jacket look (I'll use my term here) chic boutique. This is such a lovely creation. Wear it with pride!

I love the trim details, they really make the fabric sing. The details make it very upscale. And, you can't beat super easy!+

I love all 3 versions of this pattern - it really shows the versatility of the pattern and the sewist. My favorite is the print-and-silk version, but they're all fabulous.

I love the fabric/trim combination on that jacket. It's a poster jacket for combining a simple pattern with great fabrics.

Oh this is just fabulous, style/fabric/trim truly meant for each other. And the lines of this jacket is exactly what I love for myself as well. Great job!

What a great jacket! It looks very expensive; from a boutique or designer label. I really like how you used the fabrics with the trim.

I LOVE this jacket! The way you've taken the pattern and made it your own (3 times!!!) is inspirational! Enjoy!

Adorable. And you can toss it in the washer as well? Unbelievable. You deserve a prize! I will definitely be buying this pattern.

Your review of this pattern inspired me to give it a try. Unfortunately, I'm still pretty new to sewing and my results were not good. Yours looks awesome though, so I'm going to try the pattern again.
