This looks great on you! I love using menswear fabric for feminine styles because the combination exudes softness but shows that the wearer is a force to be reckoned with. What would you think about adding two more buttons to the front closing? This would create an elongating vertical line and I read somewhere that men are so intrigued by a front closing with a gazillion buttons (it makes them envision the unbuttoning process and the inherent suspense). Just a thought.

Feminine plus smart, And a neckline I heart. Classy style!

I agree with everyone! This is a great jacket and you and that neckline were made for each other (uh-oh, is that another song??:-)) Your reviews are so much fun and full of good information. This jacket is a winner!

Fabulous jacket. I love that you have used a super-smart fabric for something with some feminine styling - it's super pretty but very elegant. This style suits you so well!!

The neckline is great - and so is your hilarious and detailed review! :-) :-)

This is SEW cute! :o) I like the juxtaposition of the sweetheart neckline with the menswear stripes. You should make a skirt or pants to match, and you'd have a whole suit! :o)
