Great jacket and looks terrific on you. It isn't your brain, but I often think that the translators don't sew that causes the problems with their instructions. Regardless of language issues, you've done a beautiful job on this.

What a great jacket you've created. The fit and style look wonderful on you and is perfect to allow layering to stay warm for that very winter looking outdoor view in the background! Thanks for your review.

Thanks for mentioning "boxy and roomy" and a tip on it, as usual I can't see much from the model photo in a magazine. I love topstitching detail and collars especially, this coat is very very chic on you, love it!!!

This didn't do a thing for me in the magazine (typical for me and Burda), but you make it look SO cute! Thank you for bringing it to life. I always like Burdas better here than in their magazine!
