Wow! You did a fantastic job. This looks exactly like the original. I'm so glad you were able to participate. I've missed seeing your talent on the board lately. Very inspiring design.

That ruching over piping is breathtaking! Your entire jacket is sublimely elegant, and exceeds Cavalli garment by more than a little. Jacket envy, here ... big time! I'll just close my eyes now and pretend it's mine, for a moment. Gorgeous. -Lily

I love this jacket. It's elegant, exciting, and unexpected. Your technique using the cording for the rouching is truly inspired.
