Very detailed jacket. Looks great. Your review really makes me afraid of these patterns. Some day when I'm in an adventurous mood, I just may give one try?

I would buy this in a minute. Love the detailing. Thanks for the tip about vodka. I haven't tried these patterns but you give me encouragement.

Ha ha! That is commitment to sewing--or is it an excuse for vodka? Either way, fantastic job recreating the garment that you wanted in RTW! Very nice!

"You get to enjoy periodic "breaks" from sewing as you stare in bewilderment at the instructions for long stretches of time trying to wrap your brain around sentences like these" HAHAHAHAHA!!!! :) Perfect description! I love your jacket - it looks amazing on you!

Fabulous jacket! I love your decorative bias as the midriff seams.

Very cute top--and a fun review. I've yet to try Lekala, but when I do I'll remember the vodka.
