I am starting to work with this pattern and I Have to tell you, I just hope mine turn out half as good as yours! Yours is amazing!

Wow, I'm so glad I found this totally informative detailed review before I attempted this trench coat. If mine looks 75% as beautiful as yours, I will be totally pleased.

Never seen such perfect topstitching. Great job. I've done a summer version with the offset collar but I'm tempted to try another version, bit longer and in a warmer fabric for winter. It's amazing how many different looks you can get.

Spectacular trench and a great review. Thank you so much! I am going to try this pattern and incorporate some of your touches. Obviously it pays to take the time to spend on the inner workings of the coat as this looks better than anything I've seen in RTW (under $1000). Lovely!

Beautiful coat! I love the lining and the piping detail you added to the inside. I have this pattern as well and hope to make it up as nicely as you did. Really, wonderful and admirable work you have done.

Not only is your coat fantastic both inside and out, but your review is a mini sewing lesson. I am totally in awe of this project. It is beautiful!

absolutely stunning. I think you need to change your sewing status from "intermediate" to "advanced".

Wow. I have this in my pattern stash too. It's time to make it up. Well done. I think i'll need your advice in finishing the hem at the back vent!

You really pulled out all of the stops when making this coat. It paid off and resulted in a beautiful, classic garement. I have this pattern and will follow your review if I ever get to it. Thanks for all of the details and photos. They are very helpful.
