Well, I'm behind on my reviews here, but I sure am glad I got to this one. This is THE PERFECT jacket for you in every way. With you coloring and your hair, this is dyn-o-mite with an orange wallup. I'm GLAD it's orange and not rust -- ha! I admire anybody who tackles SUEDE so easily, too. Just perfect.

This statement made me roar, also because it is soooo true.. Quote--"Also, they say women my age become invisible, i.e nobody takes any notice of us and we are ignored in favour of the young and pretty. Just let anyone try and ignore me in that coat! They will be lucky if they escape with two black eyes. k.o'd by the orange coat."End Quote....I was a wallflower child, and vowed not to be a wallfower adult...Now, I have another way NOT to be a "wallflower older person..You are sooo correct that people judge you by the colors of your clothes.. Thanks for the reminder to put more color in my clothes..Guess that is why I love fabric dyeing, and silkscrening...Great review, and jacket!!

You couldn't have chosen a more vibrant and flattering color to enhance your hair and complexion, and suede, no less! This coat is just smashing and your decision to add functional side pockets was inspiring; you won't be distorting the shape of your front non-pockets. With your Fall and Winter approaching, you'll wear this a lot and look like a million bucks each time you do. Lovely, Lily

The jacket is very cute. You are right about women being afraid of color. Hopefully you get enough cold weather this winter you get to wear it.

Well- this pattern is sitting on the top of my "do do" pile- thanks for the great review! Now i really want to make a longer version too! So maybe I shouldn't say thanks! Great looking jacket, you look wonderful.

What a brilliant idea to lengthen this jacket and to use home dec fabric. Beautiful job and looks great on you. Thank you for the Review !!
