Hey, haven't I seen that pose before? It's Marlo Thomas from "That Girl!" Seriously, what a beautiful coat, love the buttons and thanks for the tutorials! I'm so glad you finished something so lovely for the stash contest! Must try those Spanish snap buttonholes.

So great. Well worth taking the time and making the effort. I must say there is nothing Slapdash about this one.

Gorgeous. The velveteen ruffles are perfect and I'm in awe of your bound buttonholes - with velveteen? You look very cute in it, and best of all (this year) you look WARM and cute.

OO Oooo I love it! You have such a great range of fabric (and at good prices!) in the U.S. Speaking of which, I may be coming to D.C. in March (hopefully) can you recommend any good fabric stores to raid?

What a beautiful/fun coat. I love all the details you added. I would've never thought to use fleece to make the pockets warmer (now I need to write that down). I really enjoy your reviews because they are always so detailed, and I always learn something new when I read them. Thank you!

I love the shirt you have on underneath the coat. Covet, covet :) Anyway, about the coat... It looks very cosy. I like your bold contrast lining choice. I really should be a bit more adventurous. Thanks for all the tips, particularly about how to make it warmer.
