I never realized that this looks exactly like the J.Crew 375 dollar coat. I forget the name-Mary Jane or something. Fabulous!

Beautiful sewing! I made this coat last fall and just love the fit. Glad you were able to fix the sleeves to your liking. For some reason, my sleeves eased in perfectly, but I remember several others having issues. I also agree that a two piece sleeve does hang and fit better. Great idea! The color is gorgeous and I like the way you omitted the pleat. That gives me some ideas on using the pattern again for another view. Thanks also for the great step by step on your blog for attaching a lining with your raw edge styling.

Oh how beautiful! BTW, I just peeked at your blog and see all sorts of posts I've missed (like several pages worth). Apparently I need to break up with bloglines because they aren't updating your blog on my feed. :-( I'll have to enjoy your posts later this weekend when I have some down time. So glad you've been posting, but so sorry I've missed out. Lovely, lovely coat!

Wow! What a beautiful coat. I had never noticed this pattern before, but now I must get it! Thank you for explaining all of the adjustments you made.

OOOh. I just picked this up yesterday and will checking back for the sleeve corrections. Excellent-thank you

Wonderful coat, Belinda. I would never have seen the possibilities in looking at the pattern, but now I will purchase this pattern. As always, I enjoy seeing your beautiful work!

Gorgeous fabric that has made a gorgeous coat - great work!

OOohhh its gorgeous! I want it!! Thanks for a very informative review. I have some gorgeous red boiled Merino that would look fabulous in this pattern. Thanks for the inspiration; I'm going to blatantly steal all your ideas and shamelessly copy your coat. Thank you :o)
