Your jacket is fabulous. Great job changing the pattern to become more like your inspiration.

What a unique jacket! I really like the big buttons you chose- those are very much in style now.

You really nailed this design. Your jacket is even more stylish than the RTW!! Great job!

i love what you did - making it a button up jacket as opposed to an over the head sweatshirt. great fabric choice...looks cozy yet fashionable. i do watch the millionaire matchmaker!

Great transformation and redesign. Certainly not your average sweatshirt. Nice job!

Thanks so much Lily! You've made my day! And Re Becca!

How cool, I didn't even notice from the picture that it was double breasted. That is so stylish!

Amy, I'm enchanted by your sweatshirt; it's so upscale and unique. It completely 'blows away' the RTW jacket you were emulating. Especially love the big buttons and the long sleeve cuffs. Super cute, Lily
