Nice job I have this pattern but haven't made it yet. I think that it looks like a fun jacket to have . I actually like it tied and wrapped the best. I would never have thought of using rayon lycra for this, but its is perfect for spring.

I think it looks great. I admired the pattern in SewToday mag (thought the model they used SO did NOT suit it) but wondered how it would look really. Fab job! Great colour, looks really good on you. I think it suits somebody slim (like you!) or for maternity wear. Anyone carrying some extra weight could end up looking pregnant with the wrap and tie version! ;)

Yes, you're right. The tie thing doesn't really work. Maybe an alteration will clean it up. Otherwise it's great

Nikki, you are correct; the tied in front version is not the best, but the other wearing options look lovely on you.

What a great review! Love all your demos. This pattern keeps calling to me & your demos show it to be quite versatile. Thank you.

Beautiful fabric. That is such an interesting jacket. I love that it can be worn so many different ways. Over the shoulder is a looks great.

My fav is the "one side pinned in front", with a close second of the "wrapped around & tied on the side"; that one looks like a top.

Kool. :) I liked the tied in front one a lot! But it's great whichever way you wear it. And great color on you.

Looks good! Great review - I liked seeing all the ways this can be worn. Also liked seeing how that fabric makes up into something - I bought some of the same stuff at Spandex House and it's working its way up the list.

What a gorgeous fabric and color on you, Nikki. Just as you mention, this style of jacket has been popular in RTW maternity/nursing wear (JWO and Majamas both featured them last winter).

Very chic looking! I agree with your tied in front comment, and love the over one shoulder look the best.

Wow! This is really a versatile jacket as you've shown us and it looks fun to wear. You look great in it.

I'm glad to see someone make this up. Very interesting pictures of the various ways to wrap and tie. I like the over the shoulder one too.

I love this on you. All of the tied versions are nice, but I the "over one shoulder" one. It drapes so beautifully.

Oh, I wasn't too enthused about the just-hanging thing, but I love your tie experiments, even like the tied-in-front version. Thanks for pointing out this pattern.

Nikki, gorgeous color and I especially like the over one shoulder drape style on you. You look very pretty in this!

Looks great Nikki - I personally like the first view first. Must be a record for sewing up NY fabric!
