Somehow, I missed your review the first time. Your jackets are better than the ones on the pattern envelope. You should upgrade your skill level since these jackets are evidence of your ability.

Love your jeackets, and welcome to PR! Looking forward to more from you. BTW you might want to open a Yahoo photos account for the alternate views or your FoPR limit will go fast.

Uh, where can I get your album? You are the official new rock goddess of PR. I can't believe you just winged the lining/zipper part. The fabrics are fantastic. It's so fun to see what you did three different times.

I came back to look at your jackets again and I realized I hadn't commented the first time around. Bad bad me. I love these jackets. They have so much life and interest to them. Your review was terrific, too. Thanks!

Great photos - love the "styling". Jackets are fantastic! All the thought you put into them before you started. Plain pattern but you made them "wow"!

7 MONTHS?!!! I'm totally impressed and inspired. You clearly have no fear and it pays off. Thinking of a career change from modeling to designing? Great, great job!

Nice tweak to what looks like a fairly routine pattern. You go, girl!

Wow! Great review and fabulous, creative jackets. You have really learned a lot in a short time. My only complaint - I feel really old and frumpy!!!

WOWZA! You took a plain-jane pattern to diva heights!

Oh wow, and I have this pattern! I didn't even recognize it. What creative use of it. All I saw was some wool fabric sewn into a jacket for my 'management' type job. You've inspired me to look and think a little further!

Those are 3 amazing jackets - you are clearly a very creative and talented sewist. And your photographer is pretty good too!! Keep writing reviews. I look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

i love-love-love your fabric choices! (imho, the denim version is also a rock star jacket.) lovely work. whenever i need to remember that i started sewing because i wanted to make neato clothes that one would *never* see in a store, i will think of these projects you have done. (oh yeah. and twistedangel's 'dead catfish' costume.) i am waaaay too... skittish? conservative? uninspired? in my fabric choices.

Your jackets look so good! You are a very brave advanced beginner, that's for sure. But I must admit, the most eye-catching detail in your photos is --- your kitchen is so CLEAN! Oh, can I please come live at your house?

Your choice of fabrics is what makes this jacket interesting. Well done.

Totally cool jackets! You got great fit and your choice of fabrics is wonderful! I think you should upgrade your sewing level considerably! You're already way past any sort of ''beginner'' level! Good review! I love all the photos!

Those jackets look great and show of your sewing talent. You did dive into it with difficult fabrics, you learned a lot since you start sewing only 7 months ago. I am looking forward to see more of your creations It is hard to believe that these 3 jackets are the first you have sewn, you are a very creative talented young woman.
