thanks for the feedback Moo, Manton, SB, CG, NOBD et al (sorry if i forgot someone).
the mustardy camel jacket is actually a suit - one of my first forays into MTM. the swatch and final product were so disparate but i hanged on to it for a while. it is now being enjoyed by another owner.
Manton - please educate me on the dotted p/s hate. i had no knowledge of this.
