Oh, Heidi - How perfect this is. All your efforts paid off. It fits beautifully and looks terrific on you. I love the seam finish in the batik fabric. And of course, the buttons. Congrats on a great wardrobe addition!

Great job on your jacket! The color is so pretty and the buttons are just perfect. The batik fabric for the Hong Kong finish is a nice detail too.

That is just darling Heidi. Very nice work. I've never done a Hong Kong finish, but you've given me inspiration. It has that expensive laundered look a la J. Jill or Anthropologie.

I ADORE your jacket and wish I had an identical one in my wardrobe too! You have done such a perfect job and the HK finish is especially lovely. I always wanted to make this pattern and will remember next Australian Spring. Congratulations.

Cute summer jacket! I love the colour and the fabulous buttons you found. What a find! You can sip Midori (yes it's a green alcoholic drink) while wearing your jacket by the poolside. :)
