Utterly exquisite! The pintucking is a masterstroke - it makes the coat look very special.

This is an amazing interpretation of the pattern, the pintucking is divine. I have bookmarked the yoox site, thanks for the tip!

Your work is simply beautiful. From your fabrics to your pattern choices to your accessories...totally chic. Your wonderfully detailed reviews encourage me to be precise and patient. Thank you for taking the time to review and for including so many helpful extras be they tutorials or links to inspirational sites. You are an artist.

Wow, seriously, I prefer your coat to a Dior coat!

Oh my goodness, this is astounding. Your thought process is so much fun to follow and your work is absolutely meticulous. I love that Dior inspiration coat but I really do like yours even better. I also bookmark yoox and other sites when I like something, and also right click on the photos and save them in an ever-growing inspiration file. Come to think of it, some of the pictures hanging around in my inspiration file were inspired by you, like the Bluemarine coat and the Balmain jacket! I love all the details and the double collar on this coat, and LOVE it worn open. Great boots and jewelry, too. And yes, I'd say you could definitely get away with rowdy! ;-))

I've been looking through the Burda reviews trying to figure out why everyone likes them so much - when I came on your pic I said to self "Wow! THAT's a Burda!?? NOW we're talkin'...." Of course, now I see it's more a You than a Burda lol. I bow to your awesome skills! Simply Stunning!

Craziness! Look at those perfect pleats! It brings back nightmares of my pleated silk Victorian skirt... Wonderful jacket!

Another beautiful garment, Birgitte. I love all the pleating/tucks in the back and on the collar.
