Can't tell you how much I appreciate this review! I bought this pattern about 5 years ago (!) and have never quite gotten around to it - I think I'm going to get it out and do something serious with it thanks to you. I have seen this jacket in a quilt store in Seattle seriously embelllished - and it looks stunning - perfect style for fabric manipulations of many sorts - Your coat is very elegant looking - could be worn so many places and very practical.

Margaret, would you elaborate on the interfacing tip for hems on heavy coat fabrics under tips/techniques some day? Beautiful coat (I've been jealous of the inside pockets in men's coats also) and a great review. Thanks for sharing. Barbara

I think this coat is so nice! The drape at the top is wonderful.

Thank you for the detailed review; it's very helpful to me because I've been thinking about trying this pattern line. And your coat turned out beautifully!

Yes, I expect it would be less stovepipe-y in drapey fabric; mine was somewhere between suit and coat weight with some drape but not really as much as the pattern wants. Also, a drapey, self-lined coat (for example) is going to be significantly less work than this wool one was, and would mean the unlined sleeves would make perfect sense, so I think I would recommend that idea over what I did for an easier (but likely less warm) coat.

Margaret, you wrote a very nice and detailed review. These are the kinds that are helpful. This coat made in a drapey fabric (saw and tried on one in ultrasuede light at a sewing expo) does not have a stovepipe look...cheryl
