Oh, and here I thought I'd commented on this already. Your jacket turned out beautifully! I'm so impressed by so many things here, but especially that zipper! Doesn't look refashioned at all, just looks like a great jacket. :)

Wowie! Not only is that jacket hot, but you are walking the walk! In the sense that you look pretty darn happy with the result. We need a tute! Hugs, Tina in San Diego

I would buy this if I saw it in a store-your work is fantastic, the design is outstanding and very well done. That jacket looks great on you and you look great in it! On trend yes, but classic enough to be worn for years. While all of the entries were amazing, yours definitely deserved the win.
