Your jacket is truly lovely. I would never have guessed that this was your first lined jacket. It is beautifully made of beautiful fabrics.

Its hard to believe that this is your first lined jacket! Wow - this is beautiful and your execution is just perfect. As for that planned leather version, Peggy Sagers of Silhouette Patterns highly recommends Leather Impact. I have yet to order from them, but here is a link: .

I am truly impressed and moved by this jacket. This is a jacket I would love to create and add to my collection. Thanks for making me want yet another project, but one I will probably do, due to your creation. Thanks

First lined jacket, no way! You blew this out of the water. This is just so pretty - even the lining is pretty, just love it, and it looks fabulous on you. Fantastic job, and you MUST make many more lined jackets!

By the way, I've found the metallic linen you're looking for at Mood in LA.

Your jacket is beautiful. Your version has certainly inspired me to consider this pattern. I am currently working on the Cordova jacket by Sewaholic and this pattern line is a good one to sew. Great choice of fabric!!!!

Fabulous jacket and it looks great on you! Pretty outer fabric color and texture, and love the lining, too. I got a kick out of Scooter Skyping his daddy...too cute.

So beautiful in every detail. Would you make a link to the source of your zipper? Sewbiz has many hits, but I can't seem to find the right one.

Beautiful work with beautiful fabric. Ideal for a SC winter. I am so looking forward to our annual winter stay on HHI. Ummm, maybe I'll make a Minoru jacket while there.

Well, Sweetgrass it is...this is luscious! What a beautiful job you did. I would like another one in a dressier fabric than the twill I used. Great job!! Good luck in the contest and thanks for entering!
