Jules, I love the coat. I hadn't seen your review until I just posted an update to mine. I love the blanket stitch, gorgeous.

It looks really good! And your button isn't wrong if you like it; that's the great thing about sewing your own clothing.

What a nice-looking top! It came out very well. Re the Japanese writing: One of my friends made a casual shirt jacket from one of those Hoffman fabrics with Japanese characters on it. She wore it to one of her knitting classes, and noticed that her Japanese student was sneaking funny glances at the shirt. "So," she asked the student, "Does it say something improper?" "No," came the answer, "but it's upside-down."

Wonderful jacket. You are on your way to developing great skills. Whenever you are stuck or have a problem, try asking for help on the message board.

I think Mini is right about the serger. It would probably choke up and die on that fabric. You chose wisely to hand blanket stitch and it looks really good! With this as a starter pattern, you have a brilliant future ahead of you as a sewist!Happy New Year...and Happy Sewing!

Great fabric choice for a really unique coat! If it is any consolation, I don't think a serger would work well with that kind of fabric. Probably a stretch binding would be the easiest edge finsh, if you ever do this again.

Great jacket!! I'm glad I came back for a second look after the link wasn't working the first time. Funny review too! Sounds like you'll be getting one of "those serger machines" in the future.

Great job! The fabric resembles very much something that Gwen Stefani would use in her L.A.M.B. line. Excellent choice!

You jacket turned out great. The hand blanket stitch looks much better than a serger stitch would have looked. Well done!

The fabric is very "Japanese" I really like the blanket stitch, it adds to the overall design. When I am in Japan, I seem to spend a lot of time looking at what people are wearing..the fabrics and fashion are wonderful.

What a great jacket - excellent work on the blanket stitch. I've been meaning to pick up this pattern, and your review has reinforced that I *must* have this pattern!

Love your coat and the fabric is a riot. It is sooo Japanese. Your comments reminded me of one of my visits to Japan when I spent two days in a fabric and warehouse district searhing for a TS with anything written in Japanese. I finally found one with a Japanese candy bar on the front. The women at the hotel were confounded when I showed my prize find--they simply could not understand why anyone would want a TS with Japanese writing! Anyway, your coat looks terrific for a beginner. Congratulations.

Your coat turned out really cute! What a brave beginner project. I know what you mean about your husband being 6'6" in Japan; my stepson is 6'3" in Kenya. It's difficult to ship clothes that fit that far away. Have fun sewing!

This sounds lovely. Access is denied to the photo though. Re the inappropriate words on Japanese clothing: My hubby found it amusing on our last visit and started taking photos of Tshirt backs.
