A very lovely and very classy coat! I'd buy that from a department store any day! :)

I have been searching everywhere for a long, floor-length lined coat pattern. Then I found this Vogue pattern, which is exactly what I wanted! I'll have to add some length, but that's not a big deal. I found this site looking for an actual picture of the finished coat. It looks GREAT! I never thought about making it green until I saw your picture. I hope you don't mind if I copy that idea :)

Your coat looks great! I sewed the same one, funny, I too had a special pattern in mind, just like this, but nowhere to find but then Vogue released this pattern and it was completely what I was looking for. I did not like the snaps as well and made buttonwholes. Used white lambswool /cashmere and the large collar. Great to see someone else made it too and with such a professional look

Planchett, Your coat is gorgeous! I am inspired and have some nice camel colored wool. I am putting on a velvet paisley collar - at least the top portion. I am nervous about the collar. Have my fabric pre-shrunk and ready to go. Thanks so much for your inspiring review.

Beautiful coat, and I came on here looking for a review of that very pattern, so thank you! Thanks for that fabric source, too.

I love your coat! I live in Phoenix and although we only have a couple weeks each year when it's cold enough to wear something like this, it's so beautiful I might still invest the time to make one. I too am a huge fan of LORings

What a gorgeous coat and what an experience for you. It sounds like you have worked your way through all the problems. It's beautiful and the color is one that many people can wear.

Hand-made keyhole buttonholes, wow! Nice job! It's interesting that I saw a few Channel-like jackets in the window of a high-end department store that used those magnetic snaps. They're starting to pop up a lot lately. I like you're choice of doing real buttonholes.

This is a very beautiful coat. I hope you wear it proudly. My Texas winters are not cold enough to do a project like this.

I looked at this and thought "what a beautiful coat" I know if I bought this in RTW I would pay $$$$. Wonderful job and hand made buttonholes WOW!!

Beautiful coat. Kudos for making the hand done buttonholes - which elevate the whole garment to a diff level. Lovely work.

Your coat is just beautiful, I bet it looks flattering on you. Beautiful fabric too.

Thanks so much for your comments on my first review! Yes, Carolyndh, there is only one pattern piece for the under collar- and your advice of trimming off an eighth of an inch from the under collar is such a good idea- I'll definitely try it next time.

What a wonderful first review! And the coat is gorgeous ... just what is needed this time of year! Welcome to Pattern review!
Carolyndh said... (12/20/06 9:12 AM) Reply
Very nice! Your coat looks very professional--love the style and the color. I am wondering--is there a separate under collar pattern piece that is slightly smaller in total area than the upper collar? Following info I learned here on PR, lately I have been trimming off 1/8 inch on the seam allowances of patterns when the under collar is the pattern piece and therefore same size as the upper collar.
