Tremendous teal swing jacket that enhances your coloring and beckons back to the 40's. You look beautiful! Lovely, unique buttons. Excellent instructive review showing your progression thru the fit and structure process. Thanks, Lily

Wow, what a cute outfit. And you did a lot of alterations. The final version shows how much work went into it. I love it!

Ooooooooh! I am speechless! Your entire outfit is ooooooooozing with classy Hollywood glamour, modern appeal and haute couture! You and your jacket should be on the cover of McCall's! Great work! ;-}

You swinger, you! I just saw the skirt review, and now here's the jacket. What a FANTASTIC outfit! I really love the two pieces together, and especially with the tights. Move over, Project Runway models, Ryan's Mom is in the hoooooouuuuuse!

Looks great. I too was a little disappointed in the actual size of the collar for this view. It looks much bigger on the pattern than it turns out to be.

Thanks for your kind comments everyone! I was having the sewing blues after spending an entire day on a wadder right after finishing this suit so the comments cheered me up.
