Holy Geeze. I would wear that jacket inside out all the time so everyone could see how absolutely AWESOME the lining is. Heck yeah.

I think your project looks great! I think I prefer it to a lot of supposedly "wearable" art that I've seen in books etc. The fact that there aren't 10 million colors and things hanging off of it brings out the craftsmanship nicely. Hooray!

I LOVE red, I LOVE hexagons, and I LOVE clever original stuff. Hence, I LOVE THIS!
Dang, I can't imagine all the work and love that went into this, but it totally shows and it's awesome!

Fantastic work. Good shape and I like the contrast of the red silk inside.
You always have a high level of finish to your stuff and you really seem to be able to translate your ideas into fantastic finished products (your jelly fish dress is my favourite thing I've seen on crafster ever) which is what proper craft is all about. 
I understand the whole Craft Vs Crafty debate. It's about things being crafted in the oldest sense of the word, put together with time and expertise, to produce something of extremely high quality. I'm a seamstress making heritage grade, hand sewn, period furnishings and I did a long apprenticeship before I could truly call myself a craftswomen.
(I'm not knocking the enthusiastic hobby crafter at all, I still am  one of those. I dabble in all kinds of crafts with extremely mixed results)

Oh wow!! I think this is superbly beautyfool! Thank you for sharing it here. I love the softness that it shows, and it must look very elegenant wearing it. Do you wear it yourself? I have to learn this hexagon quilting... I also like that you painted the different shades of red yourself, very subtle.

And where can you follow a major in craft? Where is that place, it must be heaven.

As for the crafty vs craft vs design topic. I think some designers might not be crafty at all, and some craft people wouldnt be interested in design. I see them as three different worlds, together they can influence and inspire eachother. But I can see if you are in the middle of it all, discussion about can mean a lot.

And where can you follow a major in craft? Where is that place, it must be heaven.

There are several schools, but I'm currently in my senior year at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. They offer a major in Crafts with a concentration in fibers, glass, ceramics, metals and wood.
