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

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!

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.

Very nice work, Sigrid! I bet your daughter is happy!

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.

Sigrid ~ I have watched you construct this coat on your blog and just want to tell you that you did a wonderful job on it! I hope your DD loves it!

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.

Your coat is so cute and hip! I love the style, color, everything about it. I"m putting this on my must-have McCall's list!

Fabulous coat. So very "in". Lucky daughter!

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 !

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.
