I'm a big fan of jackets. That's a really nice one, and fits beautifully.

Thanks for this review.... I made this, too and wasn't happy with the jacket. Your review confirms what I felt was going on with the jacket. Thanks so much!

Pretty and classic blazer in a fabulous fabric...can't beat that. Great job on fitting and it looks lovely on you.

I simply love this classic style, I love jackets and this one is fabulous, I would not mind owning this one you made. The dolman sleeves gives it an edgy look. Great fit.

Oh, this looks great on you! You really nailed the fit...super cute addition to your basics.

MNBarb, I was *VERY* worried when I first tried this on without the shoulder pads in - it was very sack-y. Fortunately, the shoulder pads gave it enough structure.

Really nice work! I can't believe you achieved this perfect fit with dolman sleeves which are often sack-y in appearance. I'm drooling over your beautiful fabric.

Thanks, everyone! JOshiro, I'm so ridiculous sometimes with my clothes!

Beautiful work! The style suits you well. (No pun intended.) I had to laugh at your comment about getting a few more years' wear out of a 20-y-o jacket!

Beautiful jacket! It looks very detailed even though there are very few. I suppose that's the secret of a good pattern! Great job :)

Very pretty jacket and you are right, a wonderful staple for your wardrobe.

Stylish, comfortable, cashmere and silk... What a great jacket! It looks lovely on and the back detail is very RTW. An excellent replacement for your favorite jacket.
