Kay, it's beautifully sewn, and the fit is perfect. I love the sleeve you used.

Gorgeous shape, beautiful fabric and flawless work!

Kay, This is just beautiful! I love your changes/omissions, which I think make it look much sleeker and more feminine. Your fitting skills take this to another level entirely. Just gorgeous!

Really slick look that you will wear and wear. Looks great on you.

Love it! This is why we have libraries of BWOF, because sooner or later we're going to want something specific and they'll have it. This is a gorgeous result, love the fabric and now I can't wait to see the dress.

I love your chic, simplified version of this. I thought this looked fussy in the mag, but your version looks great. I esp. love the sleeves!

Well, what can I say, other than SHOW-OFF! Absolute PERFECTION in every little detail. And as for wrinkles, it looks pretty darn good to me, linen or no linen! I love ALL your jackets. :o)

Lovely jacket. Love the laminated linen,really gives it a unique sheen.

Kayseri said...
I love your version of this jacket. I've eyed the pattern and rejected it a couple of times because I liked the shape but thought all the extras too fussy. You've inspired me to take another look.

Great call on the sleeve substitution! Gorgeous jacket and so beautifully made. Your reviews are always inspiring.

What beautiful fabric for this jacket. I would never have thought of changing the sleeve with the other one from the same issue. It worked out very well! Great fit, as always.

Lovely jacket. Can't wait to see the dress.

Lovely jacket. I have similar fabric so your advise on sewing foot to use was a good one. I think I will wash my fabric as well.

Kay, that's a great style, and your stitching is just immaculate, which sets off the design perfectly. Great fabric, too.

Wonderful jacket! I like the changes you made to it and the fabric is just stunning for the style. The construction looks beautiful --- congratulations!

Lovely jacket! Great job as usual! That fabric is unique to me....I've never seen it.

Lovely jacket! You took a bit too trendy jacket (at least for me) and made it elegant and tasteful. I love the pockets and the beautiful shaping through the waist. And your work is superb.

Kellie R. said...
Everything you make is superb Kay. This jacket is just BEAUTIFUL and so chic. Great job!!!

Very nice Kay! I like your changes and I thought the pockets a bit strange too. I wish I had made mine deeper, not just wider like you did yours.

This is really lovely, and your changes have much improved the original IMO.
