Goregous Coat! Beautiful fabric choice, and it looks great on you. Good choices in alterations (extra snaps, more topstitching, etc.)

What an awful lot of work did you put in your coat!! But what a result, you can really wear it as a dress too!

Your work is something to aspire to. This is SO much nicer than the original. The blue is TDF. You're my hero! :-)

I hate to do topstitching, but you've just convinced me that it has to be done. This is fabulous, no other word for it.

Beautiful! This is one of my favorite patterns from this issue. Did you use batting in the cuffs and hem as suggested to give the topstitching definition? Whatever you did, it looks great!

Well, Laura, you've knocked one right out of the ball park. I grovel, I drool for this coat. I can see why it can't be lined, but it's perfect for spring and summer evenings. Brava!

Wow you've been busy! It's so worth all the extra effort and time for the shirring and topstitching - they really add pizazz to the standard trench coat! And that colour is just gorgous on you!!
