Your daughter has a great sense of classic style. Your jacket has turned out just beautifully, and she showcases it to its best advantage.

Fabulous jacket - your corners on your collar are fantastic! I would *LOVE* to have a jacket like this.

Not a lab coat, but a cute little stylish jacket.

I love it! I would have wanted a more fun button, too. My dd doesn't usually agree with my 'style'.

Cute jacket and I don't think it looks like a lab coat, especially with the nice buttons you added.

I can see how versatile this jacket will be - I hope your daughter has fun wearing it. Thanks for the great review!

This turned out beautifully! I think the ruffled sleeve looked great and is very trendy, but the basic sleeve will be in style much longer. The jacket looked great with both sleeves. And I agree about the yardage, I don't like when they list yardage for each separate component.

Very nice! I have this jacket cut out and am very eager to get it sewn up! Thanks for the boost!

oooh! It looks even better with a person in it. I love it.

Very cute jacket, I don't think it looks like a lab coat in the photo. I'm not a big fan of ruffles and really think the sleeve finish you ended up with looks sharp!

Very cute jacket! I'm glad you had enough fabric left over to replace the sleeves. I have this pattern and was going to try it in the short sleeved version so glad to read your review first! Nice job!

Nice jacket. I liked the look of the ruffle sleeves too but having sewn and worn this jacket I understand why she didn't like them. I didn't like them either. :)
