    I just looked at the Butterick pattern. I would never have looked twice at it before I saw your version. All your choices really make it GREAT. It fits you like a dream too.

    Love the contrast of Pink and the ruffles, it really gives it the feminine edge, yet still strong.

    Gorgeous! I love the feminine-masculine contrasts – it’s extremely figure flattering yet still strict and military. Brilliant!

    absolutely adore it. i’ve tried to design a jacket sort of like this before but it is so far beyond my abilities. some day i’d love to make something along those lines…
