Very nice job--love the fabric color and the lining, You did good work. I can sense the amount of it it took to make this coat!

WAY TO GO! This looks stunning. Are those real pockets on the front? One thing I don't like about those patterns is that you can't tell which patterns have pockets vs. just flaps. You will be so proud of this "mountain" for years!

Really sharp coat! Very classic - the effort you put in will last for years.

Having made a trench myself recently from a sueded microfibre-type fabric, I very much appreciate the amount of work you put into this coat, which looks professionally-made to me (thanks for the detailed pics). I am hoping to dive into a test Marfy sometime this winter so love reading about these patterns.

Wow! I am impressed with your perserverence. Such a complicated pattern without any instructions is certainly tricky. It looks really professional and I know that microfiber is not the easiest fabric to sew.

Very Nice! and the rest of your work looks great too. BTW, I love your piano! Do you play?

Very nice detailing - the topsitching really makes a difference. Like Izzy, I, too, will be admiring Marfy from afar for a while.

Wonderful job on your trench coat. I took a look at the rest of your portfolio and your work looks so professional.

Great job on the coat. It passes my success test. If I saw it in the window would I want to try it on ? You bet. The plaid lining is a great touch too. As for climbing mountains because they're their, I agree. Really no point in doing it twice. I will be admiring Marfy patterns from afar for a while at least. Thanks for the review.
