Despite your many trials, it really looks very, very good! Thank you for your excellent review and all the trouble you went to write it (as you did to make it!). I'm sure that, with time, once the memory of all that frustration has faded somewhat, you'll be able to see more clearly what an excellent job you did, all things considered.

Thank you so much for your thorough review and especially for posting a pic. If that's a muslin only, I can't wait to read all your reviews and see those with which you are very pleased. My body type is similar to yours so I can't wait to read & view all your reviews.

Awww... so sorry to hear about all the fitting issues. I appreciate you taking the time to explain them, too. It's reviews like yours that are the most helpful. Again, thank you very much for that. As for the jacket itself, I think you should be IMMENSELY proud of yourself! Given all the trials you faced, your commitment alone is very inspiring in an age where people want everything to be fast and easy. I'm a Brit, and we generally don't make insincere compliments, so please be assured I'm serious when I say that I'm going to keep your review bookmarked for those moments when I feel useless and just want to toss it all in the bin. (winces, then chuckles) Then there is the jacket itself: It really is quite lovely and looks very posh. One of those classic staples that you could wear with either a soft casual skirt or something crisper for a more formal look. Either way: Very elegant. Thank you again for the inspiration!
