Thank you for the review. I am thinking of making this coat for my DD and your review will be very helpful. I think the muslin looks really nice.

Yes, thank you for reviewing this. I just love the style. It is a lot of collar, though, so I don't know if I would like it on me or not.

You did a beautiful job on this - sometimes we just don't know that it's not our style until its made. tha is one big collar.

This is a coat I would love to make. Thanks very much for the comments. I always wonder about those different collars. Sleeve tip I've learned after decades of sewing: Set in sleeve with sleeve side against feed dogs of machine. They will help you ease in the fabric.

Thanks for this review. I would love to make this pattern in a twill fabric.

Thanks for the review. The lines of this are very similar to an Ann Klein coat that I paid over $200 for. So, I'll be tucking your review away.

Thanks for your excellent and helpful review. The muslin looks great on you but if it's not your style I can understand why you won't make it in expensive material. Very thoughtful of you to share your comments with us as I am sure they will be helpful to others - thanks again
