It looks great. I have made a combination of two of the other Threads coat patterns so I agree that they offer a good classic selection. I also agree that a few quick and easy projects are needed next! PS It would be great if you could make your photos (not the main photo but the others) a bit bigger if possible.

Thank you all for your comments! I'm new to doing reviews and I've been struggling a bit with the photo sizes. Haven't gotten it quite right yet, but I'll just keep trying larger dimensions until I get a good result. Thanks again!

You look fabulous! Looks like you did a spectacular job. You must feel very accomplished. Thanks for sharing. I am considering making this coat and wonder how long it took to finish?

How nice and encouraging all of you are! In answer to Betsy's question about how long it took, it's very hard to estimate, because I used it as a teaching vehicle for some tailoring techniques I wasn't proficient in. That caused some slow going and even some going in reverse! It probably took me about a week or two working a bit each day, but anyone who tries it without obsessing too much about the tailoring could do it quicker I'm sure. And the result would probably be similar because it's a good pattern and doesn't really need to be fussed over. And Dorothy, Bigwig will be thrilled to know he has a look-alike cat twin out there...!

Boy, this is RIGHT UP MY ALLEY, from the fabric, to the lining, to the colors, to the style. It's beautiful on you, and your workmanship is inspiring.
