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

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
