What are you most proud of? The dragonflies. I wanted them to 'blend', sort of be a surprise when seen by the admirer. I love the asymmetrical placements as well. I hand-finished the lining too. I worked VERY hard on this piece.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself some wiggle room. I didn't have a solid plan in place and this is what resulted as I went. I'm that way. Let the fabric speak to you. ;)

Such a pretty jacket! Your dragon flies are beautiful. I can see where you would spend lots of time on making this jacket. Nice job!!!
