Elegant yet casual. So much better than RTW and your top-stitching is perfect. Wonderful take on the traditional jeans jacket, just what I need. So much so that I signed up.

beautiful jacket, I have some red pique in my stash and I was immediately attracted to your jacket, this color looks great made into a short jacket :)

Pam checked out your post on craftsy.com and your blog. Your jacket is so sharp and looks wonderful on you. Anymore Craftsy classes in the near future? The Couture dress class is excellent.

This is a really nice jacket. I love the pattern and will keep it in mind if I sew a jean jacket.
