I've been off this site for a while but recently re-joined and decided to see what my favorite sewer (and old friend) has been up to. And Wow! So impressed with your eye, skills, and thoughtful reviewing. Yahoo!

Oh wow! That jacket is amazing. Brilliant idea of cutting out the back of the 'applique' so you'd have enough fabric.
