Have been following progress on your blog. How do you fit in so much sewing? This looks fab, and multifunctional - do you think Peter could borrow it from Cathy for a night out?

I remember these, seeing my mother in that shape of coat. I always loved them. Lucky Cathy.

Too much fun!!! If I could get my hubby to the opera, I'd be proud to wear that!

Wonderful coat! Lovely springy color brings out the rose in Kathy's cheeks. Amazing sewing and storytelling. Well done!

Very creative!! Wish I could visit the garment district to pick up fabric like that at those prices :). The style of the coat seems perfect for Cathy

I'm wetting my pants after reading Cathy's story. Doesn't she look lovely with a bun-in-the-oven/baby bump. Hats off to you and your creativity! I want to live in the day when a coat and robe can be cut from the same pattern. Throw those fitting worries out the window.

I just love the Cathy photo shoots. That coat is lovely and the maternity top is very pretty too. Cathy wears them so well!

You've outdone yourself this time! Cathy looks fantastic, and love the story, glowing mom-to-be. :). Perfect colors for her!

Fabulous! I love the coat and the stripey smock. The floral lining is a cute and witty touch.

Cathy looks fab. You should see my male cousin. =) Fantastic coat. I have a vintage 80s kenmore and a singer 401. Wish I had time to sew more.

Beautiful ensemble! Cathy is lucky to have her own personal courtier. I am just a few miles over the bridge (hint hint)

Thanks, everyone! They're always fun to create, though running into neighbors in the elevator sometimes raises a few eyebrows.

Peter you are something else! I love the sophisticated 50ís look and your work is impeccable.

Very nice, and I really am amazed at an opera coat from that housecoat pattern; I wouldn't have made that leap.
