Love your coat. Great lining. Also love the rest of your wardrobe. You have a good eye and your clothes are very flattering. Wish I had that ability.

Beautiful coat in my favorite color and I love what you said about the lining "it's like a party in my coat!"

Beautiful red coat. I bought this pattern for the empire waist design, but haven't sewn it yet. It looks great on you.

Cute, cute, cute! I think I bought the same fabric to make the same pattern. :) Mine will have a blue and red polka dot lining. I hope it looks as good as yours. Thanks for the review.
