Dang! Believe it or not, I've wanted this coat for MYSELF ever since the pattern came out. Luckily, it doesn't come in my size, so I won't be walking around like the 49-year-old child I am. I DO love it though, and yours is just perfect. I can tell by the smile on your daughter's face that she loves it too.

This jacket is simply magnificient ! It falls perfectly. Black pants or black long skirt, with long black gloves would give this out fit the perfect Audrey Hepburn look! I am impressed. I never even stopped at this pattern. I am happy you made me discover it. Danku !

Thanks all for the compliments. As to the fabric: I think it's a poly/wool blend. Bought on a local fabric market where it was not clearly indicated what it was. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Perfect for your daughter and a lovely, young design. Gathering a coating fabric with 2 lines of stitching would have been a nightmare. Your solution is perfect. Very nice work.

I have this pattern. This is so adorable on. I really want to know what your coat fabric is-poly, wool? WHere did you get it.? It's beautiful.

I love the way this came out! I got this pattern recently but haven't tried it yet and was happy to get some helpful tips on construction and see such nice results. Great job!

Beautiful coat. Great idea to use elastic to gather a heavier fabric. Thanks for the tip & review.
