I have this pattern, size 6. I want to make it with various (animal prints small print size) but I am not sure how to proceed with the correct color and size for the different contrast colors? I also thought of doing the coat in various denim combinations - weight 08oz or 10oz? What do you think, any advice would be great. ps. you did a great job on your coat and the reviews below sum it up nicely!

Barbi, I know better than anyone how true these comments are; your eye for colors and detail along with your determination and exceptional sewing skills assure that all of your projects result in perfection! Thank you for assisting me in selecting the fabrics for my own (very different colored fabrics!)Vogue 1213 coat. Now, all I need is your expert help in sewing it so I can have a perfect coat, too. Love you!- Cheryl (Barbi's identical twin;-))

Beautiful coat! I love the colors you chose. What was the fabric type for your lining? Silk? Cotton? I've been thinking of making a multi-colored coat for some time, and this might be the impetus to get me started. Thank you!

Really fabulous coat, you put a lot of work into it and it shows. What an accomplishment, your quilting experience gave you confidence to combine fabrics.

What a fabulous coat. I am stunned. It would almost be worth living in a cold climate to own a coat like that.

I love your coat. I've been tempted by this pattern and the more I see it made with different fabrics the more I want it. Thanks for your review.
