This jacket is too cute! I overlooked the pattern because I don't like the sleeves and length, but your interpretation of it is something I would wear. Will grab it at the next sale. Thanks for the great review.

This is a beautifully made jacket and I love the embroidered initial on the lining. I have this pattern and was finding it difficult deciding which combination of options to use so it is nice to see some of them made up, thanks for such a helpful review.
