I'll bet you guys got alot of attention on the slopes. Your husband is a perfect Sherlock thanks to your sewing skills. Great Job.

Great coat - I absolutely love the action pictures skiing - who can resist Sherlock Holmes on skiis. Your DH is lucky - you did a fantastic job making this coat for him.

I made this for a friend a few years ago and I remember struggling with the collar. Your husband's coat is fabulous, and he plays the part well! Good job.

DH just walked by & saw photo - he wants one too! I said sure but it won't look as good as this one. Good job! Very nice.

Looks like a good excuse to go to the opera. Not surprising that your DH is happy with it.

I just went online and purchased this pattern for my husband. I asked him about it and he will definately will wear it out. He is that kind of guy. I know he will wear it to the symphony.

What a great Sherlock Holmes. And I, too, am impressed with a DH willing to wear a costume!

Awesome! I have this pattern and I hope when I make it that it looks as good as yours. Also, I adore a man who is willing to wear a costume. How lucky you are!

The coat is fab!! I agree with Seamingly Simple's comment above...they should include a hat pattern too.

They really should include the hat in the pattern: it's a key part of the costume. Nonetheless, I love how the coat turned out.
