The colors are fabulous!! I can't believe you made the fabric!

I reread my post and realize it sounded less than kind. I just wanted to stress how anxious I was to admire your work more "upclose and personal." And I know how difficult posting pics can be. Thanks for sharing what you could. You are a wonderful artist and I enjoyed your website. Also, I apologize for any strident sounding words on my part.

The pattern is a good one to show off fabric and I have to say I am impressed beyond belief at the beauitiful fabric you made. It's gorgeous and definitely one of a kind

Gorgeous!!! This pattern is in my "to do" stash, and your comments will give me inspiration to try things other than just plain'ol fabric when I make it up.

Thank you for this review! The pattern is a go-to for me so the treasure in the review is your technique for the fabric. I would love additional pics as well.

Your jacket is beautiful and I, too, would like to see a clickable photo to enlarge.
Karendee said... (3/4/10 3:19 PM) Reply
I am extremely frustrated since I can't open up a larger version of these 4 magnificent jackets/coats you've made. I would love to see the dying techniques up close on the fabic and weaving. You are such an artist; please let us see your results more clearly. Thank you.

I would love, love, love to see the details in all your reviews! Could you make the images clickable so that we can get a close-up?
