You did a great job regardless. I think vogue is vague to keep you on your toes

What a fabulous jacket? Thanks so much for the very helpful review. I'm about to cut this out and I'm glad to know about the missing instruction steps. Will also be sure to double-check the sleeve width. As so many others have said, it would be a shame not to wear your jacket. It's fantastic!

It would be a shame if this great jacket stayed hidden in your closet. My suggestion? Shorten the sleeves. The too-long sleeves make it look too big.

this is too lovely not to show off- maybe you should give it away on your blog!

Wow, that jacket is amazing. It would be a shame not to wear such a unique and interesting piece. The fit looks very good! I agree with Fran, put a snap on it, and a button for decoration, if you wish, and wear it to a nice dinner!

Your jacket is striking! Add a snap in place of a buttonhole and sew a button on top. Just an idea as it would be a shame not to get some wear out of this piece.

Your jacket is wonderful! I love how you pieced the fabric. I hope you change your mind and decide to wear it.

What a great use of your unique fabric. I think it looks fabulous on you and it would be a shame if if languishes in a cupboard.

That looks great. I agree with Clare, it would be a shame not to wear it! I'd looked at it and missed the part about "a piece of cotton used to clean printing machines," when I read that I did a double take. It really looks awesome. If you're not going to wear it you should see if you can find somebody the same size as you are to do a swap with.

How cool and to think you used one piece of material that you salvaged!!! Great artistic imagination on your lay out, it looks fantastic!

Wow, you have done a fantastic job. it would be a pity not to wear it.
