To look at the jacket you would never guess that it was a morph of the LH Mandarin Shirt Jacket. Wow! What strategic use of available resource--it is a reminder that perhaps a suitable pattern substitute may be among your already owned collection for RTW copies. The Hong Kong finish adds another designer touch to the jacket. Well done!

Very cute and I loved all your photos, that dress and those bags were killer. Cute cat - I can see it is very helpful.

WOW! You really managed to knock this http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod31100032&parentId=&masterId=&navCount=0&navAction=jump&cm_mmc=MSN-_-Shopping-_-Datefeed-_-All off well! Does dd wear it with the cute dress? Hope she appreciates what her mom does for her. I'm never quite sure about my own dd's!

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I enjoy the creative part of sewing the most. Here is a link to the dress DD wore with the jacket. http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/readreview.pl?readreview=1&reviewnum=15259 The hongkong binding was cut from a remnant of the dress fabric. I made sure to point out to DD this jacket could be worn with other things because the print finish is subtle and on the inside. I'd hate it if she decided this cute jacket could only be worn with the one dress. DD's can be a challenge to sew for on SO many levels. :)
