You did a beautiful job on this coat. I do not feel that it looks like a lab coat at all. As a short person, I will certainly give this pattern serious thought, and Vogue has always been my favorite.

Great job. It looks to trim and smooth. Your review of the pattern encourages to give it try, too.

Lovely coat. Very professional looking. Like the trim and buttons.

Really neat! I have been thinking of making a trench, but too lazy to deal with the collar and lining aspects of it. I feel a bit inspired...

Wonderful review. I could almost visualize you making it. I love this jacket, too. I have one similar on the back burner for this fall. I'm procrastinating it because I have to match the herringbone material.>love the jacket! Ronda

I just love your coat and the button detail. It is a great pattern for petites. Because of your review I will also try this pattern (I am 5'2").

nitwit; to answer your question, I hand-basted a cotton batiste to my main garment fabric and fuse interfaced a light weight tricot to the cotton batiste. My fabric just wasn't firm enough to hold its shape.

You got a very classic and classy coat out of this "lab" fabric (I don't agree w dd). Great review.

Good looking coat and good review. One question, or am I not reading correctly. You stated that you . . .hand-basted then interfaced . . . I'm confused.

Your coat looks great. I bought this pattern last year after reading several positive reviews. ;-) I hope to make it one day.

Thanks for the thorough review. The straight, vertical lines of this pattern are a superb choice to elongate a petite figure. The fabric sounds like it was difficult to work with: no give or ease to it all all. Kudos to you for persevering and finishing the coat 8 months before spring!

Very nice - if I get started on one now I may have it ready for Fall - or perhaps next Spring? Will certainly be adding this pattern to my stash - thanks for a great review

Lovely coat! The beaded buttons are so pretty. I'm sure you will get a lot of use from this coat.

What a classic trench coat. You've done a wonderful job. I love the buttons and the beads in the center just make it all your own. Great job.
