Looks fabulous on you! I picked up a great stretch cotton twill to make a casual suit with this pattern. I am taller and am thinking about lengthening the button placket on the jacket (I don't care for the space between the bottom of the placket and the top of the pants). Do you think this adjustment will be difficult?

Wow, Erica! This suit is outstanding, your workmanship is beyond excellent. I picked up the pattern for 3.99 on sale and can't wait to try the pants. Maybe I'll get the courage to make the jacket as well. You look great in this suit.

Well, Janet (or was it Latoya) should see you in this to understand how this suit is supposed to look. Bravo!

Fabulous suit and the fabric makes it even more stunning. All the details are wonderful but I agree with you the tab carriers are a very distinctive detail. Great job.

Erica, you look STUNNING! What a fabulous suit! I've been coveting this pattern and now I know I want it! Thank you for this excellent review!

Fabulous suit, perfect fit and you still made this pretty fast even if you missed the contest deadline. I have a bit of a soft spot for Montana patterns and don't have this one in my collection - may have to add it!

Hot Damn Woman!! you are a sewing Goddess. I have loved that suit and I love it even more now. You did a fantastic job as always.

Really lovely suit, Erica. The fabric really makes it distinctive. (I wish I had to lengthen my pants by 6 inches!)

Claude Montana is one of my favorite designers, and you certainly do him justice! What a fabulous suit in every single way. You look like a million bucks!
