Woohoo, you need to break out the prints more often. This looks gorgeous.

Fabulous looking cardigan! Thanks for the tip about interfacing the pockets. That's a goodie.

I love this pattern and the coat you made from it. Your creation is an inspiration for anybody who might want to sew the pattern.

Great review, I really love how this garment looks on you, like I said on your blog, it's very elegant. Took a closer look at the pattern, and I would never have noticed the possibilities of it without your version.

Wonderful winter coat! The pattern on the fabric seems as though it is in motion! What a fun it must be to wear!

Thanks for a great review. I'm going to use your method for the pocket -- great solution for thick knit!

What a wonderful, warm, chic sweater. I considered buying this pattern but decided against it because of the very open neckline. Maybe I should reconsider that. Your sweater is fantastic.

Nancy you always do wonderful things - this time I think you may have out done yourself - this is absolutely perfect!! I am in love with it!!

Nancy this is absolutely gorgeous! I wish it got cold enough here (well, not really!) to wear an outfit like this more than 2 times a year. But on LI (I'm a ex-Baldwin girl BTW), you will definitely get to show off in it plenty. It is just perfect on you!

Lovely, lovely coat, Nancy! Great use of your knit print. Doesn't HP have an online gallery of customers' creations? If so, you should definitely submit these photos.

That is a lovely combination of a patterned knit with a solid. You look great!

I love your sweater coat. I had completely overlooked this Hot Pattern, but its a perfect pick for that fabric.

Fabulous, fabulous coat! I can't tell you how much I love that print! I just love this!

Great sweater coat! It is indeed a chic layering piece!

The black trim is a wool knit that I picked up from a sale at Michaels last winter.

Wonderful chic sweater coat. Love the fabric.

Nancy, I love your coat - quite sylish. What did you use for the black trim?
Elona said... (12/18/09 11:55 AM) Reply
What a beautiful sweater coat, Nancy! You look gorgeous in it. I see what you mean about the slightly wide neck, and for a cold weather garment, I'd probably want to narrow that a bit myself, but doggone, it is a fine-looking garment.
