You are amazing. I look at the pictures of your completed work and I read as much of your work as I am able even though you are light years ahead of me. I learn so much. Thanks LauraLo.

Hi, mommietothree if you read this, I can't PM you because your profile is hidden. I sent you the file 3 times and I keep getting an error message from your server. I've just tried again, hope it works, if not please PM me or write me an email again... UPDATE: the email came back again... with the message "failed address" I've tried sending it again, using my yahoo address. If you get it, please write. If you don't, please write also :)

Beautiful job with great fit on top of that. You've got that model's stance perfected, too! You offered to email me your pdf for the up and over top... I'd love to have it. You do a great job on everything. How do you find the time.?

What an immensely helpful review. I've never used sleeve heads but the next time I make a jacket, I think I'll try them.

This jacket is beautiful, as are you. Has anyone every told you you look like Marisa Tomei. Your review was very informative and precise. I wish I was a little more advanced to be able to follow better.

This is an amazingly useful review, and thank you so much for all the photos and step-by-step instructions of these techniques. I'm always looking to raise my game in tailoring, and I've got at least one jacket coming up.

Thank you for an extremely helpful review. Really amazing. I love your jacket and I love your reviews, I always learn something new from your thorough and well thought out reviews.

I totally agree about Kathleen's bagging tutorials - they rock! With them, I was able to put in a lining without either swear words or crying for the first time in my life. I might never do anything else to a lining :-). Really like your houndstooth version - it looks like great quality from the picture alone!
