Beautiful trench! Thank you for the extra tips like binding the edge of the front facing, I'll make a note of it! So Pretty!

Thanks for the detailed review. I am interested in making this for my daughter in a fun color. Maybe one for me too!

What a smashing trench for your daughter, Lori! Love the colors, love the details ... well, just love it. It has such panache and attitude; just perfect for an 18yr old daughter. -Lily

Wow! What a lucky daughter she is! I LOVE your choice of aqua topstitching on orange colour, only experience sewers can chose and use that! I personally would love this jacket with wrinkle effect and hope your daughter like it in that way? And beautiful collars too, lovely!

This, is a stunning an fabulous trench. That color is to die for. In fact, my friend just bought one very similar for $600 from Yansi Fugel. You my friend, are a rockstar!

Wow Lori, this is wonderful! Your work is inspiring, precise and fun! I want to say more, but I am getting dressed to go to Joanns to GET THAT PATTERN!!! As always, a wonderful garment brought to us by LoriV.

What a fantastic jacket! I know your daughter has to LOVE it. The color is so unusual for a trench that it really makes it special, as does your workmanship. As for the wrinkles, I doubt SHE'LL care :o), and you can just think of them as status wrinkles, just like linen. :o) Beautiful!

Nice! I have this pattern cut out-yes, it takes a very long time-but have not started sewing it yet. Maybe your review will get me excited enough to get going on it.

Lori, what a beautiful coat! I like how you simplified the design (no epaulets) and will do the same on mine. Thanks for reviewing this!
