I love your new version, and especially love the way you highlighted this interesting fabric by using both sides.

Another winner Ann! The Ikina pattern is so versatile and classic

I love this version also! What wonderful fabric and how smart to play with the striped side like that.

Love it - the small changes you made really make it different in such a nice way- your choice of jewellery is right on for this

The whole ensemble is great. The jacket is beautiful and thank you for the pictures of the Burda top also - very attractive.

Totally beautiful on you. I have made this jacket four times but I like yours best.

Ann, your jacket is beautiful. Lovely fabric choice. Jacket hangs perfectly and is very flattering. I am glad to know about the side facings. I was one of the ones who thought they would make me look wider - but they certainly don't on you. And I agree about the special style of the side facings. This is a winner!

This is gorgeous and looks lovely on you! It is so clever how you used this beautiful fabric with reverse side for facing, neckband and sleeve hem and I agree with you, it makes the style special.

This jacket is gorgeous - the fabric is to die for. You always know just how to use the fabric. The entire outfit is exquisitely put together.

Sooooo beautiful! And can I come live with you? Your house/garden are sooooo beautiful, too!

I agree with AnneMarie, for sure! You look very glam!

Beautiful jacket. Do you have any type of closure to keep this top closed? I like that it looks pulled together. The fabric is also beautiful and the jacket looks great on you!

I am in awe. I love that rich fabric with the split-personality. The flip side made an excellent complement to the print side. This flattering kimono jacket pairs perfectly with your Plaza pants and the bias tank. Your accessories, too, complete this very stylish look.
