Great job! It does look comfortable, and looks like the fit is good. I will have to try the bias sleeves. I'm sure I have the Threads magazine you mentioned. Thanks.

Now that's cute. Saw the bias sleeve article and have yet to try. I guess I will now! If I could just review something. . .

Very pretty suit on you. Hmmm... I'm wondering if that technique will work for a dress I'm about to cut out. Thanks for the info.

I absolutely love how the lines of this fabric move through the different sections of the jacket. So unique, but so flattering to you. Great color choice also.
