Wow! This is beautiful. And so flattering too. I agree that the seams, both front- and back-side really make this jacket.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Blue Mooney, yes, other PR members have told me that I look like HM, I only wish I had her bikini body.

This is a great style on you, and the fit is really refined! Nice job! Has anyone told you you look like Helen Mirren in your avatar?

Beautiful! Your linen is gorgeous and perfect for the style. Good move to lengthen the sleeves. You really nailed the fit on this.
