It looks great! Burda always has great looking coat designs. And you’re much too hard on yourself - your first experience with Burda WOF instructions sounds pretty typical. I've been making them for years and the instructions continue to baffle me. I always have to use a sewing reference book, or the instructions from a similar Big 4 pattern.

Your coat is fabulous on you! The fit looks perfect! The color and style are wonderful on you too. You have inspired me to make a coat for next year. Thank you for your review!

Thank you for the heads up on sewing through a few 2 dot WOF patterns to become accustom to how they work. I will take your advice.

As you say, the fit looks fantastic--love the colors of your jacket--very becoming and your expertise with the construction details is evident.

Hey, that turned out really well! Congratulations--it looks fantastic. I like the shorter length too, even if it wasn't planned. Very stylish.

I admire your perserverance. A three-dot BWOF pattern is quite a challenge when you're unaccustomed to their instructions. It turned out beautifully.
