You make the best pieces of art, and this one is no exception.

This might be your best piece yet! The colors, and the drape of the fabric are so rich and deep. It is a beautiful jacket.

You are right - the print in that fabric is great. A very nice topper that looks so good on you.

Thank you for the wonderful comments everyone :). It still surprises me how much I can love a poly/nylon fabric - but I do!
