Vonne. Seriously. When I pulled up the photo I said out loud, "Gol. Lee" How do you do it? Everything, and I mean everything, you make is beautiful and meticulous.

Honestly this pattern would just fly out of the stores if this was the cover photo. Fabulous, really can't pick my favourite version, I love them all.

Would never ever have given this pattern a second look - you have made me realise it should be in the stash for sure. Wonderful jackets and flawless work as always!!

Wonderful again, Vonnevo. I still remember your jackets from last years multiple look contest and how inspiring it was to me to try and create different looks from the same pattern. Your work always looks very classy.

Wow, I wouldn't have given this pattern a second look either, but you have managed to make three incredible jackets (as usual). Fantastic. My personal fav is the black and white. Thanks for the tip on the SITD foot. You should put that in the tips sections.

Beautiful jackets, and beautiful workmanship.

As always you have done a beautiful job. The workmanship is impeccible. I reallylike how you played around with the stripes on the greenish jacket. I really like the rusching around the neck. I know what you mean about thinking ahead. I am in love with that cape also and the Burda patterns were up so early!!! Like others the pattern you picked would never have been something I would have picked now I WANT IT!!

Lovely, lovely jackets. Glad you weren't side-tracked! I'm with you on the Vogue sizing as I am a 12/14 too and can never decide which would be the better size to buy..

Oh Vonne, your jackets are just GORGEOUS!!! I'm sorry I missed your review the other day (you know the busy summer schedule). You look so classy and are going to get so much use out of your three gorgeous jackets - congrats on a job well done! :-)

NancyGT said...
stunning. all three are fabulous and I commend you on the patience for the muslin, then the fitting to make sure that you had the fit you wanted. The extra thought about lines and length for the various fabrics really shows through in high quality garments. very inspirational

Great reviews and photos. I finally acquired this pattern on eBay. It is OOP but still looks to be a wonderful jacket for spring & summer.
