Adorable jacket. I like how you used the fabric to compliment the style of the jacket.

What a great review, and a great jacket. Love 'My-KEA' and 'burdage verbage'!

Cute jacket! I like it as single breasted jacket too! I hope you rocked it with your blue or black jeans. I'm on my way to get some of that fabric though.

This is super cute! I ADORE this fabric and had no idea IKEA sold fabric. I clicked your link to their site...I think I was drooling! Nearest IKEA is 2 1/2 - 3 hours away. I need to come up with some kind of road trip! Adorable! (and, yes wear it with blue! I would even do yellow!)

Congratulations on your first BWOF jacket! You've honestly done a great job and this jacket looks good on you. I never noticed anything about the design placement - in fact, I was quite impressed at how you cleverly matched the design in the centre front. Fabric from IKEA - what a great IDEA!

You're right, this would be cute for Valentine's Day. Sounds as if you're learning to speak Burda very well.

Oh, this is PERFECT for the 4th, and all summer long too. I LOVE your fabric, and when you see the entire jacket, you have nothing to worry about with the placement of the design either. It REALLY looks nice on you -- just perfect for your petite frame. Great review!

Such a great jacket! I LOVE the fabric. I've been to IKEA but never realized what great fabric they have. Great job!

That's adorable. I recently saw this at Ikea but was afraid of the scale, but you really make it work!

Yea, I'm so glad you reviewed this pattern. This is one that I really liked from this issue and I'm still considering it. Congratulations on your first BWOF jacket - it's wonderful in red.

I love your tops! This is another great one. It looks very good on you. I also think the captions for your pictures on your site are really clever.

I like it and think using two buttons was a good choice. The sleeves are also adorable! I'm gonna give this pattern a second look now, and maybe head to IKEA, too....
