Thank you all for commenting, I'm very happy with my jacket, but would just add that after wearing it a couple of times I need to shorten the lining on the sleeves. It peeks out and I have to push it in. I forgot to mention in my review that I had to shorten the body lining by an inch as it did the same as the sleeves.

I adore your fabric choices. Such a gorgeous coat - I voted for you!

Beautiful color on you, and such a professional finish! Love the chain and inner pocket. Those details definitely make it comparable to rtw!

Fascinating fabric choice of shower proof cotton! it's makes sense for a coat. You run into a problem I have with interfacing. Usually patterns do not tell you what grade to use.

You have inspired me to make this coat. I have the pattern, but never did make it. Very nice.

Lovely coat, beautiful fabric choice & I particularly like your choice of lining fabric - very cool! A beautiful job on the sewing too, love the extras you've added. You should be very proud of your efforts!

Nice coat and very pretty color. I also like your idea of the inside welt pocket.
