What a handsome coat! You say, "As usual I added some inches to the length." My gosh, that guy is huge! I always have to add length for my slightly taller than average man, but your task is imposing.

Elona: Oh but he is a simple shape! Height is easy to adjust compared to curves. Have to be aware that extra is required when buying fabric and the seams take a while to sew - but it is still easier than fitting curves!

My kind of trench exactly! I don't know James, but I get the feeling it suits his personality vry well. The fabric couldn't be more perfect, giving it a kind of delicious slouchy quality. I love the pictures, too. Wonderful! p.s., I tried twice to leave a comment on your blog but was bounced over to Blogger each time and the comment failed. I wonder if something is up with your link?

That's good...maybe it was a browser issue. I run into a lot of those.

Fantastic coat! The fabric works with the pared down trench style perfectly.

If you are worried about the coat being lost, you could embroider your phone number (or use a permanent marker) on a ribbon and sew that to the back neck where the label would be. My husband uses his coats & jackets as a purse; he will stuff 4 or 5 pounds of things into 4 pockets. I haven't been able to interest him in a murse or small briefcase. He really wears out coats fast.

This is wonderful! It is a fantastic coat on him. I just bought this pattern for my dude and he's super excited about it. I'll definitely be peeping back at your review as I get ready to make it.
