I love the instant deal you struck with Sandra! That's a great story.

I love everything about this: the ruched collar, the color, the embroidery. If I owned this, I'd wear at least once a week! Truly beautiful.

Beautiful attention to detail and you've quite an eye for color. Love it!

This looks wonderful on you. The ruched collar, the silvery fabric and touches of red are a lovely combination. Thank you for the info on sizing. My figure is similar to yours and I keep needing to have it reinforced that less ease is more flattering.

REally nice! The embroidery was a good idea and gives it that special touch, ties the colours in well.

Beautiful Ann. The embroidery is lovely, which embroidery design have you used?

I think Sandra designs these patterns just for you.

I was just contemplating this pattern for a piece of brocade that was calling out to me. It looks terrific on you, another stellar garment for your wardrobe. Surely you must have a hard time deciding what to wear with so many outstanding choices.

So great to see this pattern reviewed. I haven't made mine up yet. How would you compare it to the Mimosa vest you recently reviewed in terms of fit and ease of construction? And which one do you like better, and why?

Stunning garment Ann! I love the side panels and hand made frogs.
