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!

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.
