Cute jacket, Melissa. I agree with you about using 1cm (3/8") seams on sleeves. Makes all the difference.

Melissa, that is simply a wonderful jacket! The style is so perfect for your figure. The fabric is so nice, too. I think that Lisette line of fabrics has several great pieces. Thanks for all the neat tips in your review. Enjoy your new jacket!!!

Love this jacket. It's just what I have been looking for for a fall jacket. Of course at this rate it will be a spring jacket. A great addition to your wardrobe.
