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 !

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!

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.

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!

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.
