Very Prada! Great example of how brilliant it is to have a TNT pattern.

What a wonderful use of a TNT pattern! Love your interpretation of the designer gear!

Lovely jacket - I would say you did a 100% knock off here - looks just as good ,is more than likely better constructed, fits better and cost a whole lot $$$$less. Bravo

This looks so beautiful, just like the Prada inspiration jacket, and I agree it looks great with jeans (as most things do)! Nice picture, too!

I saw a Gold colored Prada jacket in the More magazine, I looked very much like the same style and I wondered if it could be duplicated, you did it, what a wonderful job, I love it!!

I would have never thought of lace for a jacket. It looks wonderful!

Never thought lace could be so versatile! Great with jeans and a LBD, how fabulous can you get? Thanks for all the tips on sewing it up as well... very helpful review!

Wonderful jacket. It looks great with jeans and would look just as great with a little black dress.

Fabulous knockoff. It looks great on you and I love it with the jeans.

Seriously stunning! A fabulous knock-off that looks every bit as good as the real thing and I'm sure will be worn with even more pleasure. Thanks for an inspiring review.

Lindsay, my tongue is dragging on the floor - I'm so darned covetous! Truly smashing and you look delicious in it. And your DD has taken a really unaffected and charming photo. Lovely, Lily

The jacket is beautiful. I like the contrast of the lace against the jeans.

Really love your jacket. It's so pretty and you did a wonderful job. The lace is gorgeous.

Beautiful work. You've inspired me. I'll be looking for lace to make my own. I really like how you backed the hems and front with the china silk. It looks great with your jeans!

wow! That is a terrific jacket. I love the lace...and I am surprised that it still can look sporty even with all the lace. Perfect-:-)

I posted on SG, but it never hurts to repeat a compliment. Your lace jacket is just beautiful and you look so stylish in it. Congratulations on such a nice garment.

We all fell in love with the Prada lace this year, but this is the first knockoff I've seen and you've inspired me to get off the computer and work on mine. Just beautiful.
