I love the line of the hood. The whole thing is beautiful, but I'm in LOOOVE with the hood! Thanks for the review!

I agree with lillydee -- you should publish your own designs! Always inspiring, unusual and chic. I look forward to your next posting. Thank you!

Maybe you should start publishing your own designs.....I'd love to see how you changed the BWOF version t make the new front and shoulder line!

Love the combination of the jacket and the obi belt. You created a very unique look.

Simpleliving, I just add the link of how to make an obi belt. It's a seperated piece, not sewn into the jacket.

Great job! I love the belt. Is it a separate piece or is it sewn to the jacket?

Hello, thank you so much for very nice compliments. I am into minimal seam projects right now. Everytimes I look at the patterns, I always think about eliminating seams/ combind seams. This pattern (burda 11/2007/126) is perfect for making bath robe, don't you think?

Very beautiful. Good to know that seams can be eliminated. That is a new one on me.

I love your interpretation of this pattern and the Naomi top, JJ! I, too, did a double take after I realized that I own the November issue and your jacket looks way better! :)

I was thinking about making the original jacket from the 11/2007 issue, now I'm reconsidering. This is gorgeous and I absolutely love that it started otu as a duvet cover. Stylish recycling!

Droooool, I am drooooling over your gorgeous jacket! It looks so well-made, and your alterations suit the style perfectly. Well done!

What an interesting jacket! I like the design changes you made. It looks nothing like any duvet cover I've ever seen. :)

What a stylish jacket, I love the changes you have made to the original design.

Jaeng, this is just a stunning piece of work! Despite the minimum of seams, the jacket has shape and curve at all the right places. The microsuede is perfect; and I love the single button at bust level. Sleek, sophisticated and definitely Asian inspired. Quite a beauty! -Lily

Hey this is COOL! I have been interested in this pattern for ages but not sure how it works on me and fabrics etc., so still haven't done it, love your version with obi belt, thanks for the review!

It looks great from here - I can't enlarge your picture, probably because I got here while you're still working on it :-)
