Very Nice! ps I think I have a photo like that too - no makeup, hair amuck, - but hey you look great! No one would know the better... Where do you get your fabric..I like! I like the lowered V neck too for a jacket, you did a nice job!

Wonderful jacket, and really like the V-shaped neckline. I appreciate the tips about dealing with the fleece.

Mary, your jacket is just so perfect and it fits you beautifully!! That is a great idea to make the lowered V neckline.

Mary, the jacket looks lovely on you. I love your fabric and the fit is fantastic. I think the v-neckline is very attractive and was a smart design change. Cynthia

I love your jacket you did a great job! That is probably a pattern I would have looked over and passed on due to the pictured styles. But with your "thinking outside the pattern" it inspires me that I need to think more along that line also when choosing patterns and be more creative.

What a cute summer jacket. It looks nice on you.

I also think it is so much easier to put this type of sleeve in "in the flat". I agree with you about putting the shoulder seam to the front, the shoulder dart naturally makes it want to lie that way, especially with thicker fabric. Your jacket looks so comfy - I'm sure you'll get lots of wear out of it this summer!

I like the alterations you made to the jacket.

Great review. I liked the idea of changing the neckline. That should be the perfect weight for chilly summer nights.
