Your daughter is beautiful, and so is the coat. You did a lovely job on the coat. The back pleat is so crisp and neat. Your fabric choices are gorgeous.

I'm so jealous--a coat in my favorite color. Lovely work!

Just a beautiful combination, DD and coat. In spite of the creator's perceived flaws it looks very professional and I'm sure your DD is very pleased with it!

Beautiful! Simply beautiful! DD looks so happy and...beautiful in her new coat. You did a super job. It must be a toasty warm coat, too. As far as the drag lines -- could she be a bit hollow above her bust (or short between the shoulder and the bust)? If pulling up at the back neck gets rid of the drag line, maybe her shoulders and/or neck are more forward than you have accounted for. The coat is still gorgeous, but I know what you mean about wanting to perfect the fit. I think the high shoulder can be fixed with a thicker shoulder pad on the low shoulder. I have that, too, and sometimes do that. None of that is noticeable though.

Your dear daughter looks great in her new coat. And WHAT a pretty coat it is. I love the color and lining fabric..... so nice!

This is one BEAUTIFUL coat for one BEAUTIFUL daughter. :o) You've done a superb job, and the color is wonderfully vivid.

Nice job! DD looks great in her coat. Re: drag lines-there are additional buttons above the bust-are the drag lines still there if those are buttoned? One other possibility is that your DD is short between the bust and shoulder or has narrow shoulders leading to excess fabric.

Beautiful coat and great color!

Even if the Thinsulate seems not much heavier than flannel, I think I might use the flannel in the sleeves instead. With the small size and shape of a sleeve, every tiny bit makes a difference. Even quilting it to the lining will not totally change its loft. Or...you can plan for the extra size and cut the sleeves slightly wider. The fabric and lining are gorgeous. DD will look stunning in this coat.

I have used both flannel and Thinsulate as an underlining in coats. I did not quilt either one in - but attached it to outer fabric as an underlining. That seems to work well without adding too much bulk in the sleeve areas. As a trail run, put together one sleeve with the thinsulate as an underlining, slip lining fabric inside and have her slip her arm into it to make sure it isn't too bulky. You may need to narrow the seams slightly to get the right fit. Wonderful fabric selection.
