Very impressive. You jackets always look impeccable. When I started counting the pieces, and thinking you can get at most two major pieces per pant, I'm not surprised it took three pairs. I too am curious what a one-seam pant is.

Love all of it but the lapels trimmed with cotton twill tape really caught me eye. Very cool jacket and gorgeous lines. I love it!

You make it look so easy! Your talent shines brightly in your latest jacket project. You are definitely courageous -- to cut into 3 pairs of pants you made previously. But your courage was well-rewarded. This is off the subject, but I'm curious what pattern you used for the one seam pants. And also, was there a reason you didn't wear them? Good save, with this jacket that should get lots of use.

Fabulous! Love that zipper and the lapels. I would definitely wear something like this all winter long. (When you say one side seam pant do you mean one seam pant? Kind of curious about that terminology.)

How stunning. I love the work you've done on this jacket. And the zip is a great choice. It just adds to the great style you've drafted, draped and developed.

Aw, this is a gorgeous jacket! You can't even tell it was recycled material, the fabric looks that good. Nice job on a great jacket!
