You look so fabulous! That jacket is gorgeous and you wear it perfectly! Fantastic job, especially with all those little fiddly bits that take so long but make it look so right.

Love the Jacket. Is the fabric a herringbone or a houndstooth? Anyway it looks great with your red skirt.

It is a beautiful retro jacket and looks fabulous on you. You always seem to make the right decision on fabrics and patterns. Another job well done.

Fabulous, and you also really understand that proportion and scale among every item in your ensemble is so key for success with swing styles. You look great! And - save those scraps - you can use them to make a clutch bag.

I LOVE it. You really look wonderful in that style. Excellent work on the lining, and it's such a pretty combination of fabrics. Kudos!!!!

Ooh, stunning. I can see why you got all those comments. Looks gorgeous on you and I love the fabric choice.

All that block fusing and hard work paid off - that is one glamorous jacket. No wonder they were standing back out of your way - to get a better look, obviously. Wish I'd bought some of that fabric at Paron's.

You look fabulous in your beautiful jacket and red pencil skirt dress! The gloves are such a classic touch for the retro look! Love 'em! It sounds like you had fun wearing your outfit to church today. Great review!

You are so beautiful in this! What a great style for you! Congrats on getting it finished! Does this mean I have to sew up some of MY Paron's fabric bought the same day as yours???!

Beautiful! I've picked this pattern up several times and then put it back. Now I think I might want it. To bad Joann's sale ended today for 5 for $5.

That's great!! I keep picking up this pattern and then, for some reason, putting it down. Maybe next time, I'll keep it! Great jacket!

Wow! This retro coat looks fabulous on you! I like that you included pics on your blog of several ways you plan on wearing it!!

You look MAHVELOUS! Great job and great style. I would love to make a retro piece like this but I'm 5'1" and I fear this would make me look stumpy. Looks great on you though. Thanks for the review and pics.
