I am loving this coat! It looks so much better lengthened. I remember thinking how sloppy it looked in the magazine. Thanks. Oh, and I found the blog post HERE in case anyone else has a problem.

Sorry I couldn't see the photos -- the blog wasn't working -- from the tiny one, it looks like a lovely coat. How was the sizing?

Went to your blog to see bigger photos and glad I did. Don't know why they're so small on PR. Such a lovely coat, you've made! I agree with Nellc that yours is much nicer than that pictured in the magazine.

So glad for the link to your blog as the pictures are tiny for me too. Your coat looks very nice and I love the fun lining fabric.

Hey everyone, to see more about the coat and bigger pictures, go to Anna's blog . Anna, thank you for this review. I was just looking at this coat and thinking about making it as a spring topper. Yours is wonderful!

Is there any way you can make your photos larger? They're coming up teeny and I'd really like to see this coat. Thanks!

I love the contrast of lining and canvas, making this coat special. You have done this in two days? Wow, the way to expert sewer is a long way to me.......thanks for the review!

Your coat looks so much nicer than the one featured in the magazine, I love the colour and the jazzy lining is great. Thanks for the review.
