Excellent review and a beautiful, beautiful jacket! I'm going to have to get this pattern. I like your change to the collar opening in the front, too.

Love it! All your hard work paid off. I've always admired Burda's extra attention to detail and your translation of the zipper application certainly does enhance their design idea. Well done.

Beautiful Jacket, Nancy!! Even more beautiful on micro inspection with the close up pictures!! Love reading your reviews--I learn SO much! You amaze me with your detailing--darts on the collar etc -- things that I would never think to do--or if I did think to do them--I would skip it! LOL!! Very fun! Also love your links--SO helpful! Thank you! Carla

Sensational jacket! Love it! All your hard work really shows and I love the zipper with the leather. Great job!! There is certainly no need to try again when this one looks so good.

Incredibly beautiful. Superb sewing, and the way you treated the zipper really is the first time I've seen it. Very original and gives the perfect finish. I want a jacket like yours too!

Nice jacket and great review. You must have a lot of patience (and time) to make so many changes. The jacket is beautiful!

Really fabulous work here, Nancy! Your sewing skills are impeccable and I admire your attention to detail. That zipper application is fantastic! This is definitely a high end piece of work that you can be justifiably proud of. Very, very well done!

How simply stunning and pristine, just fantastic!
cindy-lou said... (2/2/09 7:36 PM) Reply
Nancy, listen... your jacket totally puts the ones by Gorsuch and Prada to *shame*!! It is gorgeous. And would you believe that Kashi talked me into buying a fabric so similar to this one at PR NYC 2007? I hope you don't mind if I shamelessly copy you on this jacket. It's really beautiful!

Thank you for such a complete review of the process and product. I have enjoyed this jacket vicariously through the forums and now it is fun to see it in a review. I also more fully understand how the zipper was applied-thanks for those details as I'd like to try that method on some riding jackets for spring. Beautiful jacket and impeccable workmanship!
