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

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!

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

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.

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

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.
