Sleeves too long for me.
This jacket was a good buy at the sale price, but I probably would not keep it otherwise. The color is a bit bright for true navy. I usually wear an Appleseed's size 8P in a jacket but could have worn a 6P in this one (I'm 5' 1" and 130 lbs with a 35" bust). The hassle of exchanging it is not worth the effort. The sleeves will have to be shortened a little over an inch to fit me, but this is a simple alteration I can do myself. I machine-washed and dried it according to directions. Once dry, it needed a once-over with my steamer. It's an okay jacket I'll probably only use when running errands, etc. It may come in handy for traveling.
