Thanks for the review! I had been debating about making this jacket - and also wondering what they wanted you to do with the collar. I think I might make it now (sans collar). I love the color you chose, too!

I LOVE this jacket! I'm impressed with how creative it is. I love lace and your use of it turned a basic jacket into a knockout jacket!

I love the changes you made, and I agree - it did look "grannyish" before.

The jacket looks great on you. I hope you'll find that you like and wear it a lot.

I really like it--I think it's very on-trend with how hot lace is right now.

Beautiful jacket. I think it turned out great, I hope you end up falling in love with it, it really looks nice on you. The changes you made make it look more up to date (less granny). That is one of my favorite colors too so if you decide you don't like it you can send it to me (ha ha) since we wear the same size.

Beautiful! I love the lace! I'm so glad you found a way to make this work for you - and thank you for the detailed review as well.

I like it! This pattern appealed to me, too, and it's on a long list of potential projects. I think you made some good choices to turn it from grandmotherly to currently stylish. By the way, the picture isn't showing up correctly in the gallery.
