Your new coat could easily be featured in a fashion magazine. It is truly stunning!!! Super review too!!

I'm very impressed by your ingenious interlining... I might not make this particular coat (although your version is enough to tempt me), but will definitely remember the windproof lining idea for any coats I do make!

Thank you so much everyone for lovely comments, I am glad that my worn out previously- called- shawls have been accepted so positively :-), the truth was that it was snowing heavily on that day and I just didn't want to go out shopping, so needed to find something alternative in the house, but it seems to have turned out perfect, and that is why I can seldom throw away left over fabric and why the room is cluttered with it...........

Beautiful work and great details, as always. A nylon lining is wise in cold climates & helpful in windy ones.

Really lovely coat and I love the idea of using shawls as interlining. Really clever idea.

This is a beautiful coat! i usually like more fitted coats myself, but I can see why you like this particular one so very much. Also, thank you for including a picture of your interlining. It made me smile!

What a gorgeous coat, and what inspired use of shawls for interlining. Smart construction and very smart to wear.

Beautiful! I'm so glad you reviewed this, since I am always on the look-out for "roomy but slightly shaped" coats and had overlooked this! Yours is gorgeous!
