What a smokin' jacket. I LOVE it. You'll have a lot of fun wearing this one.

Simply beautiful. I love yellow. This is such a soft and feminine shade and of course, the style is gorgeous. I'm sorry that you're unhappy with the weight of the coat, but it still looks fabulous.

What a beautiful and impeccably made coat -- it looks like you spent a bundle for it at Bergdorf's. The custom fit and the sunny lemon color look lovely on you. Congratulations on your new blog.

Congratulations on your new blog. Mistake on the fabric or not, I think that your coat is wonderful. The colour is more then gorgeous on you. The lining is more then beautiful.

THANK YOU for such a THOROUGH and INFORMATION-PACKED review. Your coat is SOOOOOOOOO pretty in that SUNNY YELLOW, I just LOVE it. OF COURSE, all of your tailoring details make ALL the difference in this "easy" Vogue. I'm not a fan of Vogue "easy" patterns either, but I have to admit I've often mulled this one over. I thought the collar was a little TOO big, but as you've altered yours, to my eye it's perfect. Of course, your lining just MAKES it. I don't make a lot of patch pockets, because I don't like the stitching lines drawing attention to them. Your method that you've demonstrated is PERFECT.

Lovely! This will be so nice on a cold winter day. Youwill look fabulous and warm. I love that patch pocket method.

Nancy---just gorgeous! What a wonderful outcome for such hard work! I love snazzy linings, and the one you chose just takes that beautiful coat up a few more notches. I think you will look very springy like a daffodil on cool spring days, and all you have to do is open it up to show the lining and it will get HOT!!! Great and informative review. Love your new blog!

Even in little photos the fabric looks ultra delicious and I read delightedly through the first part of your review looking forward to seeing where you had purchased this fab stuff. I love the color, how refreshing in the grey dreary winter! Beautiful work, beautiful coat, lovely review, lovely woman in the coat.
