What a cute coat! I was eyeing this pattern but wanted to check for reviews before purchasing. I love the classic lines a lot.

Thank you for the compliments, everyone! This shade of teal is probably my favorite color to wear.

Great tip about reinforcing the pocket bag, I've got to remember that! It looks really nice and warm, too. :)

Throw-away project? No way! Not with that teal fabric, and you looking so good in it. :o) I especially like your pockets, and learned something with the tip about adding the selvege strips for stability. I think pockets like that just FEEL so much more natural when you're using them, as opposed to patch or side-seam pockets. (Same reason I like welt pockets on pants instead of side-seam pockets.) Beautiful coat!

I love it, and the lining is so unexpected. Good point about easing corduroy in the sleeve--thanks, since I'm about to do that.

I always like your reviews because for one thing, you take pictures of you wearing the item and we can see the item clearly. Also, you have a good sense of fabric and style.

TOTALLY love the lining! You're helping me get over my fear of jackets-- and I'm bookmarking your reviews to use the tips later. :)

First of all, what a great tip to reinforce with strong selvages any in-seam pockets that will receive a lot of use. It's a really good shade of green for your coloring, and your lining is exciting. The shape is flattering, too. -Lily

Great coat. I like the potential for different fabrics with this, and of course, I like your very "different" lining.
