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.
