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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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.

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.
