Great coat which is definitely worthy of the occasion! I've been following along on your blog.

This is really nice. I love the lines of the coat-it has a flirty quality that matches you perfectly. The colors are quite striking too. Thanks for a great review.

I gulped as I read "cut it off one inch above the pockets" . . . great courage and creativity resulted in a wonderful coat!!

I agree, the line drawing was much more interesting than the photo. I think you set a record here, not only for speed of coat-making, but for speed of use of fabric purchased in November, and used together. I loved it then, and I like it even better now. The lining is gorgeous. Good save on the re-drafting after you'd made the shell, it looks perfectly sized for you now.

Beautiful coat. The redesign of the bottom makes it extra special.

I love what you did with the jacket. It still has those great lines at the neck, but with a fun and flirty swing! Looks Fantastic!

WOW! What a transformation from the "shapeless" photos to FINISHED and FABULOUS! This is a beautiful coat, made all the more so by all of your special details. I'm so jealous that you got to go to the inauguration. As in, AND I DIDN'T. :o)

Beautiful coat so quickly sewn. All of your creative changes and additions are interesting and clever. Hope you got a picture of yourself at the Inauguration wearing your coat! Lucky you...sure wish I could have gone to such an historic event.
