OOh, first comment! I love it (the jacket). You can't have too many outifts in leopard print duchesse satin, imo. Very glamorous.

Costume-y.......NO. Classy and expensive looking.....YES. The fit is wonderful and you look great in it BUT....Just not you....I get that! I'm sure your mom will LOVE it.

I love it! I agree with Peter about never having too much leopard in your wardrobe. Very elegant.

I read your blog post and no way would this suit your mom. Well, maybe it would, but it's hip, chic and stunning. I'd wear this and think I was sizzling. Love love love it.

i am in love with this jacket!!!!!!!! 1st off i love leopard, but add a wow collar and I'm done. to find out that it is not to difficult, what more could i ask? you look wonderfully dramatic, however i must chastise you for calling yourself a selfish seamstress when you shared such a informative review of this pattern :)

Great fit and a great attention grabbing jacket. I would keep it in my closet and buy tickets for the theater or opera etc.

This jacket is fabulous!!! And you look great in it! It surprised me that you think this jacket is not "you" because I thought exactly the opposite. But you know better, of course :-)

Don't ditch it! This is so fantastic on you. You know best, of course, but please give this some more thought. It seems perfect for you, and you did a great job on it.
