I love how you were able to use elements from various designs. It is always a pleasure to read your reviews, and blog, in order to see what we all could be aiming for. Beautiful 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.

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.

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!
