Beautiful classic style in a gorgeous fabric. You're right -- you will be able to wear this for yearsl.

I am in awe. I love that rich fabric with the split-personality. The flip side made an excellent complement to the print side. This flattering kimono jacket pairs perfectly with your Plaza pants and the bias tank. Your accessories, too, complete this very stylish look.

Beautiful jacket. Do you have any type of closure to keep this top closed? I like that it looks pulled together. The fabric is also beautiful and the jacket looks great on you!

This jacket is gorgeous - the fabric is to die for. You always know just how to use the fabric. The entire outfit is exquisitely put together.

This is gorgeous and looks lovely on you! It is so clever how you used this beautiful fabric with reverse side for facing, neckband and sleeve hem and I agree with you, it makes the style special.

Ann, your jacket is beautiful. Lovely fabric choice. Jacket hangs perfectly and is very flattering. I am glad to know about the side facings. I was one of the ones who thought they would make me look wider - but they certainly don't on you. And I agree about the special style of the side facings. This is a winner!

I love this version also! What wonderful fabric and how smart to play with the striped side like that.

I love your new version, and especially love the way you highlighted this interesting fabric by using both sides.
