Yes, it took some time, but it was worth every minute of it. The pleated peplum, the intriguing sleeve design, the collar -- every detail is sensational. Please promote yourself to Advanced.

Definitely agree with CarolynGM -- on to Advanced. It looks as if it will be so wearable and is just beautiful too.

You rock this look! Way to go on your knockoff. The back pleats are awesome. And, I see another toy of yours - that pressing machine...

So, so, so beautiful. Your finishing work is absolutely top notch! I wish your jacket was a pattern... I would love, love, love to have one exactly like that. I could gush for hours over that coat. Truly gorgeous, magnificent, couture work there honey.

Cindy, you did an impeccable job on your beautiful jacket. I agree -- you're really sewing at the advanced level.

Oh my gosh, this is a WORK OF ART! EVERY single detail, I'm just DROOLING over. (Yes, I ended that with a preposition, but it has more emphasis that way!) :o) And it even looks good unbuttoned, which isn't always the case with a double-breasted jacket. You FAR surpassed the inspiration jacket. :o)

I love this. I want to make a white/light colored trench for fall, and this is just perfect! Exactly what I was looking for...can you make me one? :)

To die for, Cindy!!!!! LOOOOVE the back pleats! And your sewing is impeccable. I am one envious perfectionist at the moment! :)

Cindy... WOW. Great, great jacket. Totally missed it at the time... but it's gorgeous. Love the peplum and the sleeve lining-- both bump it up way higher than the Juicy Couture original. You're a star!!
