Really terrific! Great job, especially with the addition of the zipper! It looks very nice on you too.

Sharon, this is fabulous. I wish I had made mine with a zipper. Thanks for your excellent tips on sewing bamboo.

Gorgeous back! The zipper idea was "genius" - enjoy this unique garment.

Gorgeous. Love your changes. I think the zippered front looks much better than the wrap. The back is really the main event in this jacket. And the color looks really good on you.

As usual, you've made a trendy, elegant garment. I especially love the back detail and your small hips and legs accent the detail beautifully. Thanks for all the info. on this review and your blog.

Gorgeous!!! Love it in that blue fabric too. I have already added this pattern to my next joann's spree. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.

Love it, love it, love it. The zippered front is a touch of genius. Next time Vogue patterns are on sale I have to get this one. Thanks for a fantastic review

The back is just amazing. I love it!

Your jacket is terrific. A stroke of genius to make it with a zip as it looks just right for the style. The original wrap front was a bit much, but love your version.

What gorgeous seaming in the back! I love the zipped front--so much better than the pattern picture.

Genius! I liked that back but am also way too busty to be comfortable in a wrap front. Also agree on the need for pockets. Great out of the box adjustments.

That back is just a knockout! I know what you mean about the wrap front: It just seems like a bit much, along with the sunburst back treatment, but SB tends a bit (IMHO) towards over-enthusiasm. Your front zipper is much nicer.

Great jacket! Love the front zipper instead of the wrap. The sleeves are really cool, but the best part is the back. The seaming in the back is really unique and flattering. Great job!!
