Your work is impeccable, and the fit is so good, I can see why this is a TNT and you don't need other patterns. I love the crystals.

Fantastic suit and congratulations! You look wonderful in this and the fit and construction is terrific. I appreciate description of your method on applying hot fix crystals.

Wow, Doris, with basics that fit that well I see why you don't feel a need to try other patterns! I enjoyed looking at all the photos of the variations on your jacket...lovely work. Thanks so much for sharing a bit of inspiration!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! The design is simple, but very, very elegant. The tip on the crystals was very noteworthy and I'll keep this review bookmarked. Isn't it great to have a TNT pattern? I love my Burda TNT pants pattern from their 1993 catalog.

Beautiful MOG suit. The crystals were the perfect touch and the application was intriguing.

Just beautiful and love all your jackets. Thank you too for your detailed review on adding the crystals. They really make the dress special. I didn't realize you could buy matllasse by the yard, altho I've never looked. It sure does make an attractive jacket. I have a bedspread . . . . . . . ;-)

OMG! You look outstanding. I just had to take a look at your photo album. Every jacket is beautiful and unique. Great workmanship.

wow- this fit of this ensemble is perfection, right down to your flattering skirt length. way to go! thanks for the tips on crystal placement. I will keep that in mind if i ever do a larger scale "hot fix" design.

Gorgeous work, Doris, as usual. Is so nice to see you and you look quite stunning as a MOG. Thanks for the info about the crystals, I've never tried it. And Big Congratulations due on your Blue Ribbon!!!

Gosh, why would you ever need to shop when you can produce something like that yourself? That is just knock-your-socks-off beautiful in every way.

Doris, the suit is stunning on you. In fact, you look more like a bride than a mother of the groom.
