About the Designer
Artist April Cornell's designs are inspired by her travels. Thirty-five years ago, she traveled the silk road, searching for beauty and adventure in every corner.
Believing in the importance of stopping to smell the roses, she used these experiences to create the palette for her line, which captures multicultural scents and sights with its color, compassion, and romance. Many of her prints are derived from original artwork painted by April herself, primarily the watercolors.

This is a lovely coat, but it is unbelievably huge. I normally wear a medium size 8, after reading the reviews here, I ordered a size small. Well, it's huge! If I didn't know better I'd think it was a size large.It's so attractive I decided to keep it and go to the expense of having it altered.

I really like the quality of the cotton wale-corduroy and the cotton lining. The empire waist gives a childlike appearance to the coat. At least on me. The sleeves are at least 3 inches too long. What I DID NOT read in the description of the coat, is that the last 8 inches, or so, of the sleeves is BELL SHAPED!!!So, when I cuffed back to show the beautiful lining, the cuff would NOT stay put. I have never liked bell sleeves, and had it been described as such, I would NOT have ordered! I feel like a pilgrim in this cut of sleeve. The weight of the coat is also good for Fall wear. Add a sweater, and you'd be cozy!!! Fit was nice and giving...room to spare.

Was initially hesitant to buy this due to the price, but the jacket was so cute, I couldn't resist.It eventually arrived, and I wasn't sure what to think. It wasn't exactly the way it looked in the picture the inner sleeve lining looks more like upholstery, but still adorable.

This is one of the best purchases I have ever made on VTC. Sturdy, soft, comfortable, and beautiful color. It hides those annoying curves too. Goes with just about anything. I have bought the whole outfit shown in the photo and believe me it is worth it. I have gotten so many compliments. I plan on wearing this for Easter this year. If you are a thicker lady, like me, I have a 42 bust I recommend the Large - fits just right on me.
