I like both versions, but the blue fabric is really beautiful. Good job on both.

What a lovely jacket. The fabric is perfect for it and the collar and neckline frame your face beautifully.

This is such a lovely jacket! Gorgeous fabric and so pretty on you. You've sold me on this pattern; I've looked at it for a long time and it looks so nice on you that its become a "gimme" pattern for me.

Beautiful jacket. I love this pattern but haven't sewn it yet. Thanks for noting how the sizing runs.

Gorgeous! I really like that standup collar. I find silk hot to wear, but a burn test will tell you for sure.
