What a beautiful coat! Thanks for the thread tips. I've been looking for a mid-weight for topstitching. I love the lilac color on you and all of your details are perfect. Very nice work!

Gorgeous coat - your finishing details look professional. In your opinion, is the mandarin collar tall enough to fold down and if so, would it look like lapels this way?

clothingengineer said...
Jstarr4250 - The collar is about 2.25" tall. I don't think the collar could be folded down unless you made some drafting changes. I also think it is too small to be folded down without looking weird - the lapels on this are pretty wide.

Your coat is lovely. I wonder about that collar too. Doesn't it annoy you at all? Really? Push your hair about? Anything?

ChristmasHills - I can't even wear a crewneck tshirt without feeling uncomfortable (and forget turtlenecks) but the collar on this doesnt bother me at all because it is rather wide and open. When I turn my head it gently folds aside and doesn't seem to get in the way of my hair more than any other coat.

L-o-v-e-l-y! So well done and it fits you very well. I admire you taking on your first coat project when Style Arc doesn't supply much in the way of instruction! I would have been so frustrated. Thank goodness for internet sharing. You have a lot of us looking at this pattern now!
