Love your jacket, especially the sleeves and the colour! Your skirt is a perfect match.

This was my favorite piece from this issue, and you've made it up very nicely. I know it will serve you well.

Very nice! I like the fact that you lengthened the sleeves. The whole thing looks great. Thanks for a good review.

I wasn't convinced by BWOF's version that this jacket was worth a second look but after seeing your intrepretation I now believe that it is! Very cute outfit.

This is such a cute outfit! Thanks for clarifying the BWOF instructions. It is a BIG help!

Okay, this was on my list to make but now I'm certain. Thanks for the clarification on the whole sleeve thing, I'm sure I'd have been scratching my head. Love it with the skirt, it's a great combo.

Beautiful work and thanks for describing how you put in the lining. I'm bookmarking this review. The jacket looks fantastic with that skirt.

Thanks for the review, this looks very cute and wearable, I wasn't too sure about it in the magazine. Nice lining too!
