It looks great. I think the style is meant to be a bit short and end at the waist. Really super super workmanship!

Wow, pretty jacket! Great way to build up your skills, working on a child's jacket. I need to start tackling harder projects myself. :-)

That's fantastic. I loved your review, especially the bit about ignoring DH's comment 'until he can sew something better'. Do you mind if I borrow that line? ;-)

Georgous Jacket! Well worth the effort, congratulations on your first lined jacket. I see your DD asking you to make many more for her in the future.
