Oh my, I couldn't WAIT to click on the thumbnail after seeing this LOVELY LAVENDER wool peeking out at me. And SELF-DRAFTED, to boot! What a beautiful, beautiful coat, masterfully tailored, and it couldn't fit any better if you tried! :o)

Wow. Great job drafting and beautiful craftmanship!

Your tailoring is impeccable, all of your detail paid off. Your coat is beautiful; I love the lines and style. It looks very expensive! Very impressive and being self drafted!!!! I wish it was a pattern and I'd run right out and buy it ;-)
12/31/10 5:45 PM
This is the best, best tailoring, fit, color and style.
12/31/10 6:12 PM
Absolutely amazing! Your coat is SO pretty and a garment to be very proud of. Very nice sewing!!!
12/31/10 6:43 PM
Well done! Your top stitching is perfect. So is the whole coat!

Beautiful coat with wonderful details. Great color too and the fit is excellent. Congratulations!
12/31/10 8:44 PM
Totally gorgeous in every way. The biggest compliment I can give you is to say, I WANT IT!! :) The amount of work you did, both the couture sewing and drafting (I totally understand how much time and effort it takes to draft a coat pattern) really shows. You did an outstanding job, and if this wasn't enough you wrote the perfect review detailing all the drafting details I like to hear plus your tailoring techniques. Thanks and nice job!

Your well-drafted coat fits your frame beautifully! Great color on you. Love the vibrant lining you chose. Absolutely gorgeous!
1/4/11 12:59 PM
You've made an absolutely gorgeous coat. I cannot believe it is self-drafted as well.
1/4/11 4:58 PM
Beautiful in every detail. This coat is an inspiration. What fun, too, to take it off and drape it over your chair in a cafe to give a glimpse of the lining! Looking forward to what you draft next...
1/4/11 5:56 PM
Absolutely beautiful coat -- while the fact that you drafted this complicated pattern yourself is inspiring (maybe one day I will...), I wish that there was a pattern so I could make one myself ;)
1/4/11 8:23 PM
Very nicely done! You should be so proud of your accomplishment.
1/4/11 9:49 PM
AWESOME!!!! Your skills are very, very impressive.
1/5/11 9:51 AM
What a great accomplishment. Perfect in every way, and even better looking than your J. Crew inspiration piece. Well done!
1/5/11 7:10 PM
What a work of art! Makes me want to try even harder to get as beautiful a finish as you have!
1/5/11 10:01 PM
Brava! What a beautiful coat. The top-stitching adds just enough detail. It was really helpful, too, to read about how you thought everything through. You're in an inspiration!
1/6/11 12:55 PM
Amazing coat! Such a beautiful job you did and what a nice color! Impressive!
1/7/11 7:32 PM
I love purple so I was initially drawn to your thumbnail. then when I viewed your photos, I was sooo impressed. I switched back to the review to see what pattern you used and OMG! Self-drafted!!! You certainly got my vote. Lovely on you!
1/7/11 9:21 PM
SPECTACULAR!! I'd say this was a designer coat from Neimans if I didn't know better! Gorgeous design (and unique!!), love the color, the fit is wonderful. WOW. A++.
1/9/11 1:14 PM
Thank you so much for all your drafting info, it's very helpful to beginning drafters like me. Your coat is beautiful, and even though you only briefly mention all the tailoring you did, I know how much work is involved because I just completed my own coat using similar techniques!!
1/11/11 9:17 AM
What can I say that has not been said already? FANTABULOUS!!!!
1/11/11 5:53 PM
1/11/11 6:12 PM
Absolutely love it!

What an amazing coat and your workmanship is amazing. Your skills are enviable. You have inspired me to draft a coat some day.
1/14/11 12:47 PM
Great job! It's lovely.
1/14/11 11:23 PM
Absolutely sublime! And you say you are an intermediate sewer???? More like super advanced. Can't believe you drafted this yourself. Thanks for the tips on the resources you used..will look these up. :)
1/17/11 4:11 PM
Wow! That's gorgeous. I hope one day I am as skilled at this sewing/drafting work! Very, very lovely.
3/10/11 8:51 PM
My co-worker just bought this same coat in heather - yours look SO much better! You did a fantastic job on the details, seaming, color choice and the lining is beautiful! Thank you now I have to run and buy a drafting book!
