Sigrid, this jacket is just amazing. The details are impeccable! It looks so stylish on your daughter; she is a lucky girl that you can make something like this for her.

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

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

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!

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

Wow, your jacket looks better and more professional that the RTW one. Great job! I can tell your daughter loves the jacket very flattering fit on her.

I agree with lilyofthevalley; yours is all-round much better than the original. But I'm sure you know that!
