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.

Terrific jacket! You look great. I love it over the red dress but it is absolutely adorable with jeans!

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!

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???!

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.

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!!!!

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.

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