What a clever use of your stash material. This is such a great outfit. The touch of animal print is perfect. I love the belt and the shoes. Very Ralph Lauren and such a classic outfit. You will wear that for years. GREAT project !

Beautiful tailoring, love how you've styled it with the belt and leopard tank, which by the way looks great w/o the jacket too. Very snazzy, shows off your trim figure.

These pieces are beautiful! So well conceived, well made and artfully accessorized. You get a blue ribbon in my book. Good luck with the fundraiser!

Your outfit is stunning and you look fantastic in it! I have been wanting to make a safari jacket (have collected many different ideas cut out of magazines) and realize you have achieved the safari look with a very simple pattern. Bravo! Regards, Second Avenue

Lovely outfit! Even better that it's created from stash. :)

What a great success! I will look forward to seeing it in person. I especially like the animal print tank top peeking out. The fit and fabric are perfect.

Barbara, this is fantastic. I can't get over how you managed to get the same look by altering various patterns. All pieces fit perfectly and are very flattering. This outfit is a winner. I agree that it would also look great in the khaki green linen.

Ooooh! I need to repeat your mantra OVER and OVER! When patterns and fabric are cutting into the space for sewing there just MIGHT be a problem! LOL! How smart you are to use patterns you already have to make such a great looking outfit! The fit is so nice on each garment.
