Thanks for the sweet comments and encouragement. I'm hoping to wear this very soon. I cannot wait to show this to my mom when we visit her and watch her eyes pop out!

This is a great garment! Like a jacket, no maybe a top--very versatile! Love that style on you too!

I absolutely love this shirt jacket! You did a wonderful job with matching the fabric in the front. Looks lovely on you.

Fantastic! I am so impressed by the way that you've matched up the design in the front. Great work! This shirt looks really, really good on you and I love what you've done with the sleeves. I'm sure that you're feeling pretty happy with the way it's turned out.

I love this shirt jacket! The fabric perfectly suits the style. Excellent job! Your lantern-sleeve modification looks great!

Very pretty ! I think that between the 2 clover projects, this is my favorite one.

You Speed Sewer, You!! Another great top; love what you did to the sleeves; very creative. As always, excellent review, Louella! I think my coat/hat came in 5th, that pleased me! ~Connie

Super stylish, well-fitted blouse jacket. Excellent pattern match-up, perfect, buttons, and the lantern sleeves look beautiful and also very flattering. Time to pat yourself on the back :-)

Really nice looking shirt-jacket on you!!

Well, you've done it again. I can't imagine how this shirt-jacket could be improved upon. I LOVE those lantern sleeves, and they're rigiht in style now, too. I may try that on something, as well. I would have never thought of it without your review! This top is very flattering in that the armholes are cut high enough that the body of the shirt really shows off your slim torso!
