I agree with the benefits of having BWOFs, they are so useful, I love this pattern in a magazine but yours looks better, love it.

Excellent jacket! All the design details and fine materials give lots of interest without distracting from the overall style and fit. Your hard work paid off!

Fabulous! I love all the designer elements - the couture fabric, the Riri zippers. And it looks great on you.

Nancy, I'm impressed that you thought through and wrote out a construction order before even starting! Your creation is beautiful and I agree would also be great for a leather jacket as well. Wonderful work.

Fabulous! All the detail in your review is very inspiring. You reminded me that I should have added to the cap when I did a full-biceps on a knit top I just made. Hopefully it will be OK, though, since mine is knit.

WOW! I love the style and your attention to detail with fabrics produced a fantastic, versatile jacket.
