Excellent job with fabric placement. A classy jacket and I want one just like it.

Thank you for this great review. Your jacket is great, really great ! Also, many people must tell you that you look like Lady Di... you do .

OMG - this is so striking - I love black and white and this is stunning. I would never have thought this pattern could make up so nicely - your modifications have made a huge difference - well done!!

Aixoise, Thank you for your kind words, but no, I did not make the pants. However, I will be attempting to draft from scratch my first pair next week. I am excited at the prospects!

Great jacket. Love the combo of fabric and pattern. The fit is superb. As is the fit of the pants. Did you make those, too?

Your attention to detail and continued trying on to fit, fit again and refit a third time certainly paid off! Great look

Fantastic! The jacket you made looks so much better than the RTW one. Your jacket looks great on you, too.

What a fantastic jacket!! You look terrific and I appreciate your guidance on changing the collar. That's a part of pattern re-drafting that can definitely challenge me. I love Lafayette 148 styles and am so impressed with your version.

Absolutely eyecatching and chic! This looks much more enticing than a very expensive jacket I just saw at Macy's!

Wow, wow, your jacket is fantastic. Your changes are perfect and they way you matched the floral pattern is amazing.

OMG! This is fantastic work. I love the way you matched the pattern, not just on the bodice but the sleeves as well. I love it and it looks so great on you. Bravissima!

I love your jacket. Your changes to the pattern really makes it look like the RTW jacket. Good job.
