Overall it was a nicely sewn jacket but it felt stiff and it was heavy. Its like wearing a rug. They used the funky crepe in the body of the seams to counter the stiffness so you could move freely. I should have expected that because of what the fabric was described as but I thought it was so pretty. There are so many soft fabrics these days I decided I don't really want all the bulk and weight.
pretty ... but
Really a nice LOOKING jacket. Wife said the fabric weight & texture felt like wearing a rug, and the black lining was scratchy. Returned it.
I love this jacket! As for the other reviews- I think the little black chiffon touches at sleeve and hem are FAB!! This jacket is for the STYLISH;), only true fashionistas would appreciate the creativity and art put into this jacket. PS. I get compliments every time I wear it!
The fabric is great, but where the thin black fabric shows in the picture, when the item is on, it gaps close to the arms both front and back and looks as though it is torn. It would have been much better to have left ioff the flimsy fabric all over (at the hem, in the seams, and at the end of the arms. I will return it as I would never wear it as it is.
Gorgeous Jacket, But....
This is a beautiful jacket - but the netted fabric at the hem and on the bottoms of both sleeves is not only pointless, it tremendously detracts from the look. I had my tailer remove all of that black net - which to me looked messy and added nothing to the style. Fortunately, the netting was easy to remove/hem up and now the jacket looks as it should - unique, great texture, and sleek.
