the photos don't do it justice

Really, I think it looks way better in real life.Or maybe it's just that wearing it makes me feel so good.

Love it Soozs! Perfect marriage of fabric and form. And it DOES look great in photos.

h&b said...

Not only do I think it looks *fab* ( and that fabric *difficult*! ) .. but your telling beam in the first pic says it all, really.

Well done.

Kate said...

Love it!! Fantastic fabric and perfect pattern - you have done and amazing job.

eeloh said...

Wow, your photographer is very talented :-)

Tania said...

FAR OUT WOMAN! It's a doozy! That collar alone was worth every smidge of time, effort and perserverence. Am thinking you could safely do smug for quite some time to come.

Michelle said...

It's just so fabulous!!

Suse said...

That collar is amazing!!!

Lazy Bone said...

I love it!

Colette said...

Love it love it Suzie!

Great collar detail and froggie closures.

Janet said...

wow, wow, wow! excellent job on the collar and I love those closures - it's all fabulous! .... I imagine this will be number one wardrobe item this winter.

Marina said...

That collar is pretty amazing, and the coat is lovely, as is your whole outfit in the last photo! That gray skirt is great. Oh, and um, I don't know that I've commented before, but I found your blog somehow or other, and it's quite a good read!

Wendy said...

Fantastic jacket! Your whole outfit looks really great in the photo. Well done!

Jodie said...

By God your a spunk !

The collar is a work of art and is perfect.

You blow me away!

sooz said...

Thank you for all the lovely comments! Glad it's not just me being full of myself and a case of emperor's new clothes!!

craftydabbler said...

Wow, it looks great, especially in the last picture.

Suzy said...

I love it! You look so pretty. And the collar totally makes it.

MildlyCrafty said...

Yeah it's nice but I think the collar could be bigger, perhaps more like this :D

Seriously though, well done!

travellersyarn said...

I love it, and am wildly envious of your skills in making it without a pattern!

You should be put on Tessuti's payroll, because you are revving my buying urges prior to our July trip to Sydney.

Seems to me that Mildlycrafty is being a bit of a smart arse! ;)

Love the jacket and glad to have seen it in real life at the store yesterday too!

kylie said...

Gina said...

Yep that collar is working for me. A work of art!

Lisa said...

Love it Sooz, it looks great. That fabric looks so awkward to work with - you've 'got it' though, it's just fantastic!

Donna said...

Wow, that is a wonderful jacket and so flattering on you.

kt said...

OH!

Look what you did! And congrats on the travel plans--muy exciting.

It's beautiful. And terrific in combo with with that skirt & those fab boots. Keep wearing it with a smile on your face and a little flicker in your heart :)
