I've made this coat also, but have to say I am very impressed with how you matched the pattern of the fabric at the front. Bravo!

What a fantastic coat. The beautifully matched front reminds of the wonderful stuff I used to see when snoop shopping at Harrod's in London. You did a wonderful job. I would never have guessed it was your first coat!

Love your coat and am very impressed with the matching of pattern. Can't believe this is your first coat: very professional looking and super-attractive.

YOU STOLE MY FABRIC! I just ordered this same fabric online for a coat I'm doing for the RTW Knock-Off contest - I'm glad to see it is as nice as it looked! Great job! p.s. My coat is not going to look like yours so don't worry. :-)

Beautiful coat and I agree with others complimenting you on your perfect matching the fabric pattern. I am also a FSG enthusiast and I will be looking forward to more reviews of her patterns from you.

Nancy, your coat is lovely. You did a wonderful job of matching the design on the fabric. I made this coat four years ago and am still wearing it. It is very timeless.

Your coat is gorgeous, beautiful fabric and pattern matching. I wonder though whether the buttons could have been spaced to fit in with the pattern somehow?

your pattern matching on the CF is so good I had to look twice and then again to make sure there was an opening and buttons. Congratulations on your first coat, it looks great.

Gorgeous!!!! I can't believe you got the pattern to match up at the front. Just fantastic.

Fabulous coat-you matched the design of the fabric so well. It is spectacular.

I was really careful in trying to match the fabric, but had no idea if it would work. I made two copies of the front pattern piece and laid it out on a single layer of fabric. I had marked the center front line on the pattern and found recognizable shapes that I could place on that line. I moved over to the repeat on the other half of the fabric and placed the center line on the same shapes. It worked!

Great job on your first coat. Everything looks just perfect -- the matching, the pockets, the fit. Very impressive.

Wow! I think you matched the fronts perfectly - just HOW do you do that?

Very neat fabric, and a great job on that coat. You've even had some cold weather to go along with it!

I love it! I admired this fabric at and the buttons caught my eye at Joanns. Your coat is really beautiful.

Beautiful coat. Great fabric and the matching of the pattern makes the coat look better than a RTW one. Good job.
