The jacket looks great. The sleeve length gives it a vintage look. I've been seeing a lot of similar jackets in the catalogs lately.

Oh Barbara, that suit is beautiful! I thought it was the Vogue DKNY suit when I first saw it. You did a great job. Thanks for an exhaustive, informative review! -Ann

I like the design changes you've made to the jacket. It really "suits" you.

Beautiful suit & great review! Thanks so much for all the details, this review is so informative! I'm so glad you didn't give in to the "jacket suicide" urge, much as I have no problem understanding . . .! LOL

Thanks for a great review, Barbara. In spite of your problems with the buttonholes, the suit look great. I think your choice of fabric is what makes it look so good.

Your suit is lovely. Thanks for this very informative review. I have often wondered what the "real deal" was with this suit - since the model in the picture is posed in such an unnatural position

What an absolutely wonderful review. The extra tailoring you did paid off with a beautiful outfit.

Fantastic suit. Fits you perfectly. I'd love to see that "wild print" lining.

Thank you so much for all the tailoring information. Your suit looks wonderful. I like the vintage look that the bracelet length sleeves give the jacket.

You look Fabulous! Great sewing lesson. I like the skirt on you. Good call to eliminate the tie.

Great review...the notes on the feel of Bemberg are very interesting and I'll keep that in mind.

Thanks! If you want to see a photo of the inside of the jacket before it was completed, just go to my website. Cut and past this into your browser --- The photo on the website also shows the 'wild' print silk organza I used for underlining there.
