I also LOVE this pattern, but alas and alack, I've no place to wear such a beautiful suit (one of the few disadvantages of this fabulous SAHM position). Your suit is just gorgeous, and now I want to make it even more! Fantastic workmanship as well, a real masterpiece. (Now I see that you are an advanced sewist and I should have guessed that.) Thanks for your review.

You have a tremendous eye for altering the pattern to give the intended look to a petite figure. Your execution is superb as well, making for a truly exceptional and flattering suit. The fit you attained makes it look like a million bucks.
