And, by the way, I think you need to up your "sewing skills" ranking. :o)

You are an inspiration to us all, and that's no bull. All those PLAIDS to match, not to mention the many couture details of your coat. (And who's to say you won't be out in gale-force winds sometime?) :o) Thanks for the GREAT review!

Impressive Carolyn! That is a wonderful coat and you did a fabulous job. Bias isn't easy but you tackled it successfully.

Membear: The trim on the lapels is a machine fancy stitch - kind of a heavy zig zag - worked in a Sulky thread. Kim G - the coat itself has the back pleat When I was cutting out the lining I used the patttern piece for the back but folded the excess material needed for the pleat out of the way so although the lining is almost an exact replica of the coat it is missing the back pleat.

The word "handsome" comes to mind - love the bias detailing and the collar.

Grat coat. I love how you used the plaid on the bias in some sections and on the straight of grain in others.

WOW! What a gorgeous coat and stunningly beautiful job. Matching all those plaids...I am in awe.

This is exquisite! Your plaid-matching skills are superb! Thanks so much for the construction details--they provide a great checklist for any coat. Any chance you could include a photo of your pleat w/o lining? It sounds like a great idea, but I'm having trouble visualizing it.
