Wow Erica, your jacket looks fabulous. I love the animal print lining and you are wearing those shoes. I must move this pattern to the top of my list. Another fine work. What type of interfacing did you use for the collar?

When I first saw this coat I thought the colla was just way too much but not that I have seen it on a couple people I think it's great. It's so hard to tell from the pattern drawings. Thanks for the review as always you did a fantastic job.

Erica, you did it again. This is absolutely gorgeous, and it was lucky that you didn't find buttons that "did it" because you made something even better.
