Thank you for the tip on the lining flap. I started a trench coat last year. I am no seamstress but consider myself an experienced sewer. When I got to the part about cutting the lining flap, etc. I put the pattern away for a while. The weather got nice(summer) and I left it there. I have be nervous about going back to it because of this part. It took me a while to figure out how the collar went in. The directions did not make sense to me. It was not the Vogue pattern but a Butterick. I send an emial to the company for help with that. Now that the weather is cool again, when my husband hits the road again( salesman to the western Canada Oil refineries) I will start working on it again. I find when he is home and he comes home for lunch I don't have enough time to just concentrate on my sewing. No interruptions when he is away. I want to get is finished for use this fall and then I can start my Christmas crafts.

The proportions of this style work well for you. Good choice, as I could see that a coat with different styling could overwhelm, and lots of them do! Looks terrific.

Thank you everyone. I greatly appreciate all your comments. I think this coat is as much a product of all I've absorbed from all of you on PR in the last 5 years, as it is from the decades of sewing that went before it.

Very smart; well done. I've always loved Burberrys but have never considered making my own; maybe I should.

Wonderful, wonderful coat. I too have made this pattern and as a small boned person can confirm its excellent proportions. I would agree its time consuming, with lots of pieces, but so worth it and I am sure you will get many years of wear from it. Thanks for all the very useful tips too. A very, very helpful review.
