Love, love, LOVE your jackets! Both versions. I would like to make this jacket for myself, but afraid. And I am amazed, that you call yourself advanced-beginner. A jacket looks so professional. Thank you for your review. :)

Gorgeous! I love the red lining peaking out. It's a great flirty touch to a feminine suit!

Looks better on you than on the model! I didn't even look at this pattern before your review. Really nice!

The entire suit is beautiful and fits you perfectly! I love the pink lining that peeks out from the sleeve.

I have this pattern and have not made it yet, so I'm very pleased to hear you really like the jacket portion! I love your work on it and it looks great on you, both versions! Did you understitch the lining around the collar? Sometimes, that will help to keep it from peeking out. Although I love the beautiful pink contrasting lining!!!

I love this on you, I had to take a second look when you said no facings, I think I need to make this. Both look very nice.
