Very helpful review! I am trying to decide which length to make and your review will really help me make up my mind.

Thank you, I was wondering how it would go on a 5'2" person. A great review.

thank your for the great review on the two lengths, I too am petite and was worried if the longer version would work

Everything looks really nice. Thanks so much for such an informative, thoughtful review. Personally, I really appreciate it.

Both versions are attractive on you. For flinging it over the shoulder, you could either use a costume jewellery broach attached on the shoulder through all layers to secure or an inobtrusive safety pin on the inside.

Do those fab boots come in the pattern envelope? Sure would like THAT! You wear both well... Thanks for the comparison views.

Great comparison of those two views. Thanks for all the information about this pattern and the pictures.

I think these are both very flattering on you -- you look quite tall in the pics! Personally, I find the proportions of the gray shorter version more pleasing, for what it's worth. Great job.

This is great info for the petite among us. I like this on you-maybe try a short version like the fit of the black one for spring. I think the shell has a really nice updated look with its band. You did a nice review.

It's great to see the two lengths reviewed side by side.

Lovely versions. I too was a bit wary of this as I am a little shorter than you, but was surprised just how much I liked both versions for me ( I definitely don't have to worry about any FBA's myself but its very useful to have that information in the review)
