Lisa, your jacket looks great! Actually, I think your version looks better than the pattern envelope photos!

Great looking little jacket. Looks great with your slacks.

Your jacket looks wonderful! I may have to reconsider Loes Hines patterns!

I think this jacket looks great on you! I agree with looks better than the pattern envelope but I have not had much luck with Loes Hines jacket patterns

Lisa, the jacket looks great. Why don't I have this pattern? I'm on a fabric diet, but nobody said anything about patterns!

I like the look of your jacket, my first thought was that you looked slim. Anyway, I've got this pattern and have to get it out and give it a go...

Very nice fit. I'd be ticked if there was a pattern piece missing, though.

It looks wonderful. It looks shrunken, but it does not make you look like you need to shrink! Wear it happily!

LOL. Thanks, Ladies! Why is it that something that looks ok in the mirror can suddenly look too small/crooked/wrinkled/etc in a photo? Must be the flash... :P Penelope, if this were the first LH jacket I tried, I'd be ticked that the pattern piece was missing, too...but it wasn't a big deal since I've got about 3 other copies of that pattern piece in other jacket patterns. Actually, I'm beginning to wonder why I don't just cover one set of shoulder pads with a neutral color lining fabric and use that same set for all the jackets, since they're all attached by Velcro. I can only wear one at a time anyway...

It looks very nice. The fitted look works well for you, I think.
