Wow, I think this is just adorable. Would love to see it on you. I like the longer sleeve version. Your fabric is terrific and that lining adds a nice couture pop. Too bad you don't like the pattern because it really turned out quite beautifully.

Sorry you don't like it so much because I absolutely love it. I may have to add this pattern to my stash. I especially love the sleeve ruffle and the collarl detail.

Your jacket is lovely. I know what you mean about the 'not being a ruffles' and fuss gal. It IS a gorgeous jacket.

I agree on the ruffles and fuss, too, but your jacket is gorgeous. I love your fabric as well.

The fabric IS gorgeous. I saw this pattern and thought the same thing.. it is just outside my comfort zone. Your execution is beautiful, and I am sure you look great in it, too. I can't wait to see the pic of you in it.

I enjoyed reading about your jacket. I think it's quite cute; your fabric choices were great. I'm pretty sure you're going to love wearing it as soon as you've had a few days away from messing with it.

I think it looks adorable~! I'd love to see a picture with you wearing it, and a couple other views (side, back). I know, jackets always seem to take so long. I have one I started in April, and got stopped on it when the hips were too narrow...argh. Guess I'm getting motivated to tackle it again, by your post

I think it is adorable too, and hope to see pictures of you wearing this jacket. I am with you on long projects.

The fabric you chose for this jacket is lovely! You look fantastic in your jacket - it doesn't have too much ruffle or fuss! I hope that you'll wear your jacket often and get lots of compliments.
