thank you for the very complete explanation of the work you've done here. Your jacket is beautiful and your comments will be very helpful.

I am making this now and wish I had read the reviews before I started. I made it in two pieces. :( I am also very confused on the bottom part. They only show you attaching one piece 12 to one piece 13 and I have more pieces. Very confusing instructions! I am just going to use common sense to get this put together. Piece 13 is also quite a bit longer than piece 12 and I can't figure out why.

I'm in the midst of making this jacket/coat and am also making the mid-length. It was very helpful to read your sewing modifications so that when I get to the points you speak of I will compare your way against the instructions. I believe you've found a shortcut. I think you looik good in your short coat and the fabric you selection is attractive. I was especially glad to see this coat made in a print because the pattern envelope shows the 3 coats in solid colors. I'm making mine in a black on white print and hope it looks as wearable as yours. I agree with you that the shaw collar, although stylish, is a bit much. Good suggestion to try a different type of collor. Thanks.

I was thinking of picking this pattern up at Joann's current sale. Your version looks great, and so the pattern is being added to the list. Thanks!

Your coat looks SUPER super cute! Thanks so much for your thorough review! I'm currently slogging through a muslin of this and was really hoping someone with more experience would test it out before I get to the stage of *gulp* cutting my gorgeous, beloved, expensive fabric for the final version.

This jacket looks great on you! I love your fabric choice. So glad you wrote this review since I thought the wide collar might be overwhelming on a smaller person but it's PERFECT!

I got some fabric that I really wanted to use with the pattern - thanks for the info on the instructions. Those sound crazy! Your method is what I usually do with coats, so glad to know it will work and I should write up my own instructions before I start on this coat. And I agree - this pattern is appealing in all the lengths - it will be hard to choose which one to make! You should be super pleased with your finished coat, it looks great!
