Love the summery look
I really like this jacket! I thought the material would be thicker, but this is summer and it is perfect. I will not be zipping it up, rather let it hang open over the gold tank. Great look for summer-a little dressy but not too dressy. I am enjoying it. I did press it, but it is cotton and does need a little ironing. I got it on sale and felt that was a good value.

The best word to describe this jacket is "cheap"!! It can't be used as a jacket; it's too light-weight. I agree with RETIRED2005... The bottom "elastic" doesn't do a thing. I'll just leave it alone. If it was $15, I would say the value was good, but it cost me twice that and the value was very poor. I washed it before I used it and prayed that it came out all right. Definitely needs ironing...

I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIAL AND THE OVERALL DESIGN OF THE JACKET. IT IS DEFINITELY 100% COTTON THAT WILL ALWAYS NEED IRONING. I GUESS I OVERLOOKED THE 100% PART IN THE AD. IT IS VERY THIN AND IT MIGHT LAST 2 WASHINGS. FOR THE PRICE I PAID, I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE MORE ELEGANT AND RICH LOOKING BUT IT WAS FAR FROM THAT. I AGREE ABOUT THE DRAW STRING AROUND THE BOTTOM--NOT BECOMING OF THE JACKET. WISH I HAD SEAMTRESS SKILLS AS I WOULD ALSO REMOVE THE DRAWSTRING AND ADD SOMETHING ELSE..

Change the elastic
I removed the elastic cord in the bottom and replaced it with 3/4" elastic. I also put 3/4" elastic in the sleeves. I like it much better this way. That cord just does not cut it for me. This jacket is similar to another one I got from Blair that had the 3/4" elastic. I thought this one would be made the same.
