Wow. Really impressive! I understand why you made it in a dark fabric, but I wish I could see more of the details in your photos. I like the look of the mitered corners myself. Kudos to you for completing such a challenging project! Hope your husband appreciates the fruit of your labors!

Yay!! You got it done! And in time :D This looks fantastic! You really did a super job - very professional looking. He looks so sharp in it - the fitting is spot on! And Wow that is a lot of welt pockets; your back vent with the mitered corner looks perfect. Thanks for the tips on the instructions and buttonhole placement. DH should be very pleased with this. and yes, dog years should be added for your total count for him!!! Excellent job :)

My husband's $700 overcoat from Jos A Bank doesn't look this good. Congratulations on this momentous accomplishment.

Thank you all for the very kind comments. cleverkitty - I don't know at this point if I could ever mark "Advanced" especially after a project like this. It is such a humbling experience to get through but thanks for your sweet suggestion. = ) InglesideBelle - I've updated the review with hopefully better pictures of the details. I had a hard time last night getting this done in time (<15 minutes to spare upon submitting) so was intending on getting better shots of the details, sorry about that. : (

Thank you for the details on the pattern. You sound as if you gave yourself a personal Challenge beyond what the contest required. You succeeded. It is a wonderful example of a tailored structured garment. Your husband will walk with pride in his appearance and with pride in his wife's skills.

Blown away and grateful for the level of review you've written. I really deeply appreciate this, as I head into murky tailoring waters I have no business being in.
