Both of these are very attractive on you and you've done a wonderful job of letting us know about things to look for when constructing this pattern. This one is a keeper. Hope mine turns out as nice. Thanks.

Wow, Irina, that second jacket is terrific. I never really liked this pattern, but with a couple of alterations, your jacket is stunning. Great job.

Wow, that burgundy fabric is gorgeous! Your versions look so much better than the photos on the pattern website!

Thanks for the tips, Irina. I have this in a "to be made"pile, after a few other projects to finish. Your jacket looks beautiful on you.

Thanks also for the fabric tip regarding silk noil. It does make up nicely!

Irina, your bolero jacket is very becoming on you. I like your fabric. This is one of my favorite patterns; I've made three.

Very nice jacket! Thank you for your comments on fabrics. I have this pattern too, but was unsure what fabrics to use.

Great jacket. I will be trying this in the same sizes as x-xmall tapering to large seemed to work for me in the Kimono. Thanks for sharing.

Don't you just love this pattern? It is so flattering. I have made two jkts. one a shortened version from a spongy rayon and the longer one from one of LH fabrics, the 'Missoni' Knit from her latest swatches. I do not have the technology to post a pix....sorry. BTW, am going to Carmel tomorrow to her Boutique, not sure that she will be in the shop. My ASG group had a pre-arranged field trip to her shop in July and she and was most helpful and gracious. I didn't get to go because of a health thingy, so four of us are going down tomorrow. An opportunity to try on her garments before buying the pattern.
