Wow! I LOVE it! I don't like most capes, but since this is so fitted, I would make it if I had the pattern. Great job!

I LOVE this! I so agree that the belt changes the entire silhoutte, making is so flattering! Good eye, too, noticing that the buttons would be under the belt. I must be extra picky, too, because that would drive me nuts -- ha! I say GO FOR THE LONG GLOVES! I can just SEE IT NOW! :o) Long gloves with RUCHING! Wouldn't that be pretty? :o))

I love your rendition of this cape and the wonderful detail from your review. I can't wait to make this NOW! Wonderful job!

Great jacket. The addition of length is both flattering and makes it more classic than trendy (IMHO) Well done!

Wow that's really great looking. It's a shame that capes aren't worn anymore in normal dress, I love them! The cut is so modern and looks great on you, well done!

You're one of the reviewers on this site who makes me want to make everything you review! Another superb job with thoughtful changes (improvements) to the original pattern. I love it. And I think you need to upgrade your Advanced Beginner rating, mylittleelephant!
