While you can certainly wear that at other times of the year, it will be perfect for the Christmas season. Good info that the embroidery thread looked nice; I will have to keep that in mind.

Very Fancy jacket and great directions will have to check out the fabric next time I'm at JoAnn Fabric. One comment on microsuede: not sure if its just me: when I wear an item made from microsuede it clings and the longer I wear the piece the more static the fabric becomes.

Thank you everyone for all the kind words. I did wear this to dinner with my ASG neighborhood group the other night and got rave reviews on this one and my denim jacket. BTW microsuede and a turtleneck sweater can be very warm!

Your jacket is beautiful and looks great on you. Your description of how to sew microsuade is very helpful. I'll be printing it out for future reference.

Your new version of this jacket is so lovely! Thanks for all the helpful tips for working with the microsuede. It sounds like it was a challenge but your result is wonderful!
