It is a cute jacket, Kay, and what a superb job you've done with it! I love the fabric - very smart. Your Hong Kong edge finishes are sensational! Thanks, once again, for such an informative review.

it is cute and you should be very proud of the great job you did on finishing those seams. the collar is impressive too.

I like this jacket, Kay..actually, I like everything you make; but this one fits my life. Ran to my stack of Burdas and will print out your review. Thanks for the warning about the particularly poor directions..will keep me from thinking it's me!

Love this pattern - have eyed it in BWOF. The fabric looks delightful and your workmanship is perfect. All those Hong-Kong seams - have I the patience for it I ask myself !!

Another great review! I love this little jacket. The fabric really is allowed to shine with this design. Somewhere along the line I made something with a similar collar design, and I REALLY liked it! Impeccable details, as always.

Love this jacket on you, I wouldn't have thought to make it from the BWOF photograph. Yet another one to add to the "to do" list I fear........!

Nice jacket, Kay. Thanks for pointing out the partial stand for the collar. It has a nice effect. You HK finish was a great choice.
