That is a really great coat, I had picked the pattern out for later this year but thought I would look at the reviews before I start looking for fabric. I can't believe you have not been sewing for long. It looks really professional. Well done.

You have only been sewing 4 months? Oh my! You are exceptionally talented. I would have been very proud to have sewn this coat, and I have been sewing for over 20 years. Excellent work!

I have never sewn a coat, & I've been sewing for over 3 decades!! You were brave to jump in, & did a super job for one so new to dressmaking. I think you'll be doing some fantastic items VERY soon!

I can't believe you just started sewing such a short time ago. You really bit the bullet here and came out with a fantastic result. Congratulations!

Fabulous coat! You did a great job especially using a tweed as you did and your first bound buttonholes. Glad you found my instructions helpful. :) P.S. Your English is perfect!

Thanks ! Persevering thanks for pointing out my mistakes (corrected now)! Beastella, (je vais répondre en anglais pour que tout le monde comprenne) you're absolutely right sewing a coat is really rewarding, you just need to take it slowly, one step at a time if you are a beginner. I bought the fabric online :, they had a great deal on it (around 6€/m). But it looks like it's not available anymore. If you're in France or in Europe here are some online stores I like : and . The last one is available in many languages and has a lot of fabrics.

superbe, quel manteau. c'est toujours ce qui fait peur aux débutants alors qu'en fait c'est toujours ce qui donne le plus de satisfaction et c'est pas si difficile, la preuve. En tous cas, bravo de s'être lancée. Le tissu est très beau aussi, il vient d'où ?

I am impressed your great review, beautiful coat and thank you for the link to the bound buttonhole tutorial. D'ailleurs, vos efforts m'encouragent parce que je veux recommencer à coudre. Vous êtes débutante et à la fois vous écrivez en anglais avec excellents résultats! Bravo! Pourriez-vous accepter ma suggestion suivante? En anglais, on utilise une lettre majuscule pour la première lettre d'une langue... ainsi 'French' et 'English' dans votre écriture. (

Your coat is wonderful!! Beginner? You sure do dive right in there -- a lined winter coat with bound buttonholes -- WOW. :D By the way, don't fret -- your English is almost perfect!

Congrats on sewing a coat! And you've only been sewing for 4 months! Wow!!!!

Thank you for all your comments, they are a great encouragement ! Fuzzygalore, you're having me worried also! I just hope that the fact that I interfaced the acetate will make it sturdy enough to last a few winters... And that by then I'll have the technical experience to replace them without making a mess !

That looks awesome! I need to put this one on my wish list!

fuzzygalore said... (1/15/10 9:54 AM) Reply
Your coat is really gorgeous! I am however a bit worried about one point: lining fabric isn't very sturdy, and acetate is particularly not abrasion-resistant. So I'm afraid your buttonholes, if they're done in lining fabric as you say and as seems to be true on the pictures, will soon show signs of fraying. Maybe you can start thinking of ways to replace the welts without deconstructing the whole thing?

What a lovely coat. You've combined well the fabric and the pattern for a very stylish result.

Congratulations on such a great project. It looks terrific. Sewing just gets easier as you go, and you've already overcome such an extreme hurdle. Absolutely a wonderful coat.

I think this turned out just great! Love the fabric. You did a fantastic job. Thanks for the link to Belinda's tut on bound buttonholes. It might come in handy in the next few days as I work on some of my own.
