Annette, this jacket is stunning. I love everything about it, especially the trim--I think it pulls the fabrics together and highlights them beautifully without overwhelming. Your sewmanship is extraordinary. Love, love, love it. Thanks for the review and the very helpful pix.

I hereby declare you the Queen Of Fabulous Jackets. And I definitely need to check out that fleece/satin lining! It might just replace the bemberg I was going to use on my winter coat.... Oh, and I LOVE your label!!! :D

You did a great job, your jacket is cut!

Beautiful. I must figure out how to flag your reviews so I can use them as tutorials when I sew. In fact, maybe I should only sew after you have done a review. Thanks for a great read.

Adorable! You may not like the behavior of the trim, but I like the look of it. And it goes great with your beautiful floppy hat. You did well not to make it smaller - dropped sleeves really need a lot of bust ease if you're going to be able to move your arms. You could probably have gotten away with no lining on that basis as well, but never mind that now. Hope you're warm enough with all this :-).

BELLISIMA, Annette! Such a luxurious and chic jacket. I'll keep that Kasha lining in mind next time. Lovely use of fabric, style, trim, and those buttons are just too cool. Definitely a jacket that is fun and practical to wear!

That is so beautiful! I like the braid! I always having trouble finding those types of braids for jackets, please reveal sources? The fabrics you chose are so gorgeous. You really look great in your latest jacket.

I really love your jacket and how carefully you crafted it. Also appreciate how you type up your review and include the envelope front/back.

You always make such beautiful jackets and coats. This no exception. I know you don't like the trim but I think it sets off the contrast beautifully! What great looking lining, I bet it feels sumptuous as well. Really love this jacket.

I really like this, Annette. Fabric, contrast, binding, closures, pretty much everything. You outdid yourself.

That is one lovely jacket! I would never have guessed that those buttons were not full depth.

This looks so luxurious. Gorgeous, gorgeous style. Gorgeous you. Gorgeous hat!! Is that from KellieR?? I agree, so warm and cozy yet totally ultra tailored-like Ann Taylor or Cold Water Creek, Talbots? Whatever. I love it. you are so talented.

Very nice winter jacket! Hope you get to wear it a lot and not have to bring out the down coat.

As usual, a beautiful end product and wonderfully helpful review. It's nice to see you again.

Oh this is so lovely and you look ready for Paris madam with your hat and all. Another excellent review and what can I say about your work - exceptional as always - I like the look of the foldover braid and the combination of pattern and fabric. Guess this is another pattern you made me have to add to my must get list.

Wonderful combination of fabrics and trims. I think the foldover braid is a sets off the plaid and the taupe, and emphasizes what turned out to be great lines. And as always I am in awe of your workmanship.

Great jacket. I like the combination of wools you used and I think the braid looks great with them. It looks incredibly warm and comfortable.

"YOU look mar-velous, sim-ply mar-velous!!" So classy, so cute, so you!!
cmarie12 said... (12/27/09 3:00 PM) Reply
This is stunning on you and I'm sorry darlin' but the foldover braid doesn't look cheap at all in the pics! You've made me look at that pattern again cause I had pegged it as a loser!
Karendee said... (12/27/09 2:42 PM) Reply
WOW!!!!! It's been said before, but this wonderful coat is one big wow! The workmanship is perfect, as usual--and the final product is to die for. Where is this cheap look with the braid? My eyes see an elegant braid accenting the plaid and solid of this coat. Along with the silver (half) toggles (which I really like BTW), the trim just emphasizes the lines of the coat beautifully. You have certainly made a winner and the pics help to visualize each step of the way. I know you will enjoy this "sassy coat" on your drives around NE in the winter. Enjoy!!!!!

"IF you had a walking foot" ....... always thinking of others more than yourself! This jacket is so beautiful. You made me laugh about half buttons. I also learn so much with your reviews. Thanks for another great one! Enjoy wearing your gorgeousimo jacket!
Catbird said... (12/27/09 2:14 PM) Reply
I love this jacket on you! What a great idea to blend the two styles so that you have the shapely princess seam bodice and the more modest-sized collar, which go so well together. I LOVE those toggle buttons -- they're made of metal, right? The whole thing looks deliciously warm and cozy but still tailored and chic, all pulled together by that dark trim. The lining is gorgeous. THANK YOU for another superb and funny review! I like your last line....:-))

I really like your coat and it looks so good on you. I'm also in Nebraska and I have a feeling you will be wearing your coat a LOT this winter. Great review, as usual. Stay warm!
