This is one stunning jacket! Awesome job in matching the fabric. Isn't it wonderful when you don't have to make alterations? You did a wonderful job with your jacket.

Wow! What a beautiful jacket. Such professional results--no wonder a co-worker wanted you to make one for his wife.

It's drop dead gorgeous. Sandra Betzina should use it on her pattern envelope. You'll get compliments every time you wear it.

This is really gorgeous! Takes a little time, indeed ;-). But don't make one for the coworker's wife, he can't afford what it should cost, make another for yourself instead..

Ann, this jacket is simply stunning. Perfectly sewn and cut ! Superbe creation ! Also so much more beautiful then on Vogue's picture.... where the princess line do not fit with the model's bust curves. Yours is great !

Oh my gosh, what a wonderful jacket. Your hard work and attention to details makes this so special. Simply beautiful and inspiring.

Your jacket is beautiful. It has almost convinced me to make up the collared view instead of the other one. The drawing on the pattern makes the collar look sort of 80's (with the big shoulders), but yours is nicely proportioned in updated style.
