This jacket is so cute, I want one! You did a wonderful job of knocking this off. The details are beautiful. I love the lining too.

Your review was so informative, and the jacket is superb. Very impressive workmanship. It must have taken a good deal of time.

Fabulous knock-off. Enjoy reading your review and blog.

Well, you've done it again! Your so-called "knock-off" puts the original to shame, and that's a fact. Every detail is perfectly executed, and I can see that your daughter is thrilled with the results!

Beautiful, inspired version of the Designer Knockoff (and you do know, don't you, that your lapel lays much better than his?). I think you've exceeded the mark and given your DD a very special garment. Thank you for sharing this with us. -Lily

I am really impressed with your ability to 'see' the Rodriguez jacket in the Burda pattern that you started with. What a fantastic result!
