WOW! It's gorgeous, and I can't believe you only spent $30 on the leather! Did you "crop" the sleeves? How big was the hide?

I think you were robbed of the first place prize in this contest. This jacket is AMAZING and I can't believe you've only been sewing for 3 yrs! You're my sewing hero! Fab jacket & LOVE the lining and pocket inside - too clever!

Fantastic! Can't decide what my favorite feature is, the ruffles or that awesome lining.

Wow! I thought I got a cheap leather jacket from Bali last year at $150. This is really impressive for $30. Makes me think about making one. Great job.

This looks fantastic! Indeed, the ruffles were the perfect touch. Great work persevering with those tricky things. I also adore the lining and the hat pocket. Adorable finishing touches!

Why have I not made this pattern? It's in my stash, but perhaps I should just have you make a jacket for me. Your black leather with the ruffles is so professionally done it's unbelievable! I love it and you look fantastic in it. Congrats on your perfection!

what a terrific jacket and the ruffles were worth the effort - I too am so jealous of your $30 leather - I have some sued still waiting for me to sew - I must get going on it.

WOW- this is fantastic!! And the leather seems to be great quality as well. I can't believe it was only $30. I love your camel jacket just as much. Beautiful.

Great job! I love the detailing and the lining fabric. The inner pocket was a nice touch. Good for you sticking with it to make those ruffles.

What a great touch, love the ruffle on it! Can't believe you got the whole jacket out of one hide for $30, it looks fantastic!
