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!

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

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.
