Thank you for this review. I love all your jackets, but this last one is so special. Just beautiful. I am heading off to cut a muslin from this pattern. Thanks for all the inspiration and I wish you the best of health.

I love swing jackets and yours are beautiful, particularly this one with the fur trim. Your ability to remake this jacket over and over in unique ways is truly inspiring!

All of your Ikina jackets are beautiful, but this one is truly inspired. The faux fur collar and Chanel- style lining makes it a true couture tour de force. I too have made this jacket many times and keep coming back to it over and over again. I have at least two more planned. Thanks for inspiring me with another ingenious variation using this pattern.

So glad to see you back on PR, Terri. I do love your work - we trend towards the same patterns, but you are much more bold than I am! You've inspired me to make another channel-style jacket. I'll bet it feels as yummy as it looks. And the faux fur is divine. Hope your health improves.

Thank you all for your generous comments. To clarify, I only gave two of the knit ones away - talk about a nice gift that goes together faster than some crafty thing! Dorothy, re the shoes, most women go down a size in them. I have little feeling in my feet (used to be none) and I was originally fitted in a size 38 that I slopped around in. Then I went down to a 37 that fits correctly. They should be releasing some new colors for spring!

Oh my! What a great interpretation of this jacket. You've made me take a second look at this pattern. I really like all your versions! Thanks for the review!

What lovely jackets. I'd never consider this pattern but these are inspiring.

I am blown away by the work you do. These jackets are amazing, and you wear them so well - and with such attitude. I found that shoe line when I was in Pacific Grove last week and fell in love with them. They didn't have my size, so I will be looking for them online. Not only are they cool looking, but they are soooo comfortable.

So lovely! This pattern has always sort of intrigued me, but I wasn't wild about those side flaps. Thank you for the inspiration of the changes you've done :)
