Your jacket looks like a million dollars. I think your tailoring techniques really show.

Your jacket is truly beautiful. Your attention to detail and professionalism in construction really shows. I can totally see a stunning suit if you had enough fabric for a pencil skirt. Great job!

Gorgeous job. I sure hope you got an A on it (if it's for a grade). The sewing is impeccable- the sleeves are perfect, it's just beautiful.

Beautiful, beautiful jacket. Your fabrics, both fashion fabric and lining, meld into a perfect package. I certainly do admire your workmanship on those pockets, especially in that fabric. They're perfect!

Really stunning jacket. I bought this issue so I could make the jacket, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Your success with this pattern tells me I definitely should.

Absolutely beautiful. I love your fabric choice, and I agree - a belt would have disrupted the design of the back. You've made something wonderful here.

Stunning and gorgeous! You did a beautiful job with this jacket. Everything is perfect including the sleeves. Glad you left the back belt off...the fabric alone is very unique. Well done.
