You are not *at all* a careless seamstress; just the opposite! Your care and attention to detail, as well as your brilliant decision to sketch out and make notes of the process, has resulted in a very professional and stylish summer jacket. And your review is meticulous and extremely helpful to the many others who will want this jacket, after seeing your Beauty. Lovely, Lily

I loved the look of this pattern in the magazine and now I really want to make it. Your version is gorgeous and I love that the fabric is not your usual safari colours. I also really appreciate all the time you took in writing your detailed review too - thanks.

That is CUTE. The pattern definitely caught my eye in the magazine and I was double-thrilled to see it's a petite. But man, it looks like a lot of work. Great job.

I am so jealous. I've had this pinned up on my idea board for weeks and knew I might have to lengthen to a non-petite..just can't find the fabric. But this is invaluable, since all I had was the intstructions in French. Thanks so much--it's beyond useful!
