It being linen, washing a few times will soften it, no doubt. I actually like the ruffled edges you made, and the colour is lovely! I hope you learn to see it afresh, as I'm sure it's quite stunning on.

I think your jacket looks great. I made the jacket out of leather and am pleased with the result. The fit is great, the collar could be tricky, just mark accurately.

It's gorgeous-I caught my breath when first seeing it. Wear it with your beautiful jewelry and a smile!

It was a treat to see this pattern made up. It will be a wonderful transition piece and great fall color.

What a fun jacket! I have this pattern as well and now I am hoping to find time to sew one up!

This jacket is much nicer than you think it is. I think it looks fantastic. In fact, I'm inspired to make it myself. Your review will be a very useful reference.

Totally in agreement with the rest of the reviewers...your top is stunning and the best looking of all the previously made same tops in PR.

Thanks so much for you compliments! I cut off the fringe and zigzagged the edges. I am going to be a big girl and wear it today. Maybe it will soften the jacket as Barbara V suggested!

I'll add my voice to those who insist that your jacket is beautiful and perfect. The fabric and color are really stunning. Sometimes you just need to step away from it for a little while and view it with new eyes.

I just love your jacket; I think its beautiful. I never really noticed this pattern till I saw your version. I agree with what Tailypo said, that you can put it away for a little while, then look at it with fresh eyes!

Your jacket is gorgeous, not at all too stiff looking....are you sure? Perhaps with just some wear and tear it will soften to your liking. I just checked and discovered that I have this exact fabric from FabricMart with the subtle stripe running through. It looks really nice made up....thanks for inspiring me to sew something with my piece.

You can just send that gorgeous jacket to me! Perhaps you envisioned how this jacket would look beforehand, and the slightly varied outcome makes you feel displeased. Just wait until you wear your lovely jacket and hear all the wonderful compliments you'll receive. Great job!

I LOVE THIS JACKET. And orange is one of my favorite colors; would you like my address? Really, this is really a beautiful art piece.

It looks pretty good to me so I hope you become fond of it when you've worn it some more.

I have this pattern and am anxious to make it but the collar edging has me hesitating. I think your solution is quite lovely and innovativer. Put it away for a bit and then take it out and look at it with fresh eyes. I think it's stunning and i love the edging. Lovely, lovely job.

I hope with time you will come to see this jacket with fresh eyes, for I think it is just lovely.

I too think the jacket looks really good, and I love the colour - perhaps you just need to look at it as if you hadnt made it yourself & then you would see how fab it is!

too bad you're not happy with the result. I have to say that in the pictures it looks great! What beautiful fabric, too. I love it. It may grow on you after a while. I hope it does because you've put so much work into this and it is very nicely made. I also love the jewelry in your photo set. Did you make that? Its gorgeous!
