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!

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!

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

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.
