    Love it, love it, love it! Very Aeon Flux. Do you have a pair of pointy white shoes to go with it?

    This is an awesome jacket. Love love it. I didnt get a feeling of straight jacket at all. It looks to me a bit futuristic but a near near future.

    I really like that you are game enough to use a sheer fabric, because you have most definately pulled it off. If only I could get my boyfriend to wear something like this, sigh…

    Wow, I love the pleating done on this piece! If you say it looks like a straight jacket, then everyone in the loony bin is a fashionable mental case :) It’s adorable and very well-made.

    Hmmm… I have been perusing your amazing cardigans, and I have to say I love this one the best! So cool! Keep experimenting, keep the cardy alive! Love it. You may have listed yrself as novice, but you are no novice when it comes to cardys!

    It totally works, it looks like it would keep you cosy and it’s a really clever detail to add to a plain fabric. I like it.
