What a great coat for a vampire! Thanks for sacrificing and lightening the photo. We all love black but it's heck on photos. Thanks for a helpful review.

This is one of the patterns I bought on a buying frenzy when they all were one or two dollars instead of 10 or 20. I refuse to wear my jacket another winter! Thanks for giving me the confidence to tackle this project, and thanks for all the tips, very helpful review and funny too!

Love your choice of fabric. And my Mum used to say 'Beautiful people never photograph well." (smiles) It's quite clear that the light is brutal on that pic, so we understand. (smiles again) Oh, yeah.. very helpful review, too!
