WOW!!! Thank you for this review. I've learned so much from it! How-tos, sources for so many items, etc.! And your end result? Absolutely fabulous! Thinking I might have to sign for that class. Thanks again! Oh, and if you ever feel the need to do another tip/tutorial, I would love to know how you went about making your belt, and a source for the buckle - I find those VERY hard to come by.

YSL is also my favorite 20th c. designer. Beautiful, beautiful work. You are an inspiration with your wonderful projects. I especially love the collar you drafted. Well worth the hours of effort. I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing this jacket for many years.
