What an incredible accomplishment! Your coat turned out beautifully. When you recover from the trauma, you will appreciate it. Great review, too!

Truly Brilliant. We should all be so proud to make just one garment like this in our lifetime. You deserve some kind of award. I feel similar to you about charging more. I was a patternmaker. When I hear people complain about paying 15 dollars for a pattern, I want to scream - You should be happy to pay ONLY 15 dollars - that is dirt cheap for all my mind blowing suffering - it should cost 3 x's that amount . Shamefully, I feel like I'm stealing when I happily buy tons of Joann's patterns for $1.00.

WOW! I made this coat some years ago in a dark green wool gabardine which a local shop was giving away by the bolt. Turned out it was reject Swiss Army uniform stock! With pants from Vogue Woman, it's a basic ensemble. I'll go back now to this pattern inspired by your creativity to rethink new versions. Thanks for your extraordinary vision and stamina.

What an AMAZING accomplishment! Not just that you got it done, but that it is beautifully done as well. The buttons are brilliant, the topstitching is perfect. There is some serious whimsy to this coat, and you captured it perfectly. Your review was a perfect guide through your journey. Congratulations.

My goodness gracious girl - you have turned out a masterpiece - you can tell anyone who asks that you paid over $5,000 for the ensemble and they would believe you. This is what I call top of the line work and bravo for sticking with it.

Wow, I am so impressed! That is a beautiful coat, but the story of how it was made really shows of some awesome IT problem solving skills. You're obviously a loss to the profession. Congratulations on a superb garment!
