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.

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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

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!!

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!

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
