loved this jacket since I saw Devil Wears Prada. Exceptional review, workmanship, everything! Love it! (now is the collar too big for a 5' gal? should I make it or not...)

Wow Erica! I have been looking forward to seeing this and am not disappointed. Absolutely stunning. And even though you are not showing the inside, we know that that is pretty s#xy too! Opps, need to edit - the last photo on your blog just loaded and yes, there is the lining!

Erica, you did it again. This is absolutely gorgeous, and it was lucky that you didn't find buttons that "did it" because you made something even better.

When I first saw this coat I thought the colla was just way too much but not that I have seen it on a couple people I think it's great. It's so hard to tell from the pattern drawings. Thanks for the review as always you did a fantastic job.

Wow Erica, your jacket looks fabulous. I love the animal print lining and you are wearing those shoes. I must move this pattern to the top of my list. Another fine work. What type of interfacing did you use for the collar?
