I'm just getting around to making this, and your review is worthy it's weight in gold. The coat turned out beautifully, and the photos are such fun. I hope your daughter is still enjoying her beautiful coat.

Outstanding detailed review. And the main pix was a show stopper. Hugs from a new transplant to the Pacific NW

Your review is worth reading just for your pictures!!! Very cute. Congrats on the coat; looks great. (Hate to break it to you, but some buttons are even more expensive than those.)

how fantastic! i love this coat! and trust me- your daughter will remember everything that you have sewn for her. i remember all of the times when my mom and i designed stuff together and she sewed for me.... many formal dresses and lots of other stuff, too. now i sew, too, and we share the passion even though she no longer sews clothing. trust me... she will remember and appreciate. they are sweet mommy/daughter memories.

The coat look fantastic. I would love to see it on a dress form close up, it looks like there are a lot of details that don't show up in the photo's

Yes, it is the museum of glass. In one of the pictures the fountain sprayed water on my daughter suddenly:-) She really did jump! Haha!

Really wonderful job on the coat - looks great! Nice setting for photos at the Museum of Glass, too.

Thank you. I am so surprised about all the comments! Thanks so much. Just as a side note, the error on the yoke was first mentioned by Erica B in her review of this pattern (I think) I added a link to her review above. That is what's so great about PR is I can find out what other people have noticed about the pattern before I even begin. Love it!

Fabulous coat! I have this pattern and appreciate your informative review and heads up about the yoke piece error.

Wow! Gorgeous coat! All of your detail work really shows through in the final product. Also, your photos kind of look like they are from a BWOF magazine - nice work!

Thanks I appreciate the supportive comments and - yeah- I just had to do the photo shoot:-) heehee it was fun:-) I think she will always remember it. Maybe someday she will sew and remember these times and about me making her stuff. I sure hope so.
