I actually had opposite results with the fit, I made this coat a size lower than my recommended size and still got a coat with way too much ease! I dont understand!

Love your coat, Yorkshire Lass but as you know I am already a fan of this pattern. I look forward to seeing your next version.

Quite a nice review of a pttern Project that has lots of things to think about--in order to get the look you wanted. Nice job.

This trench coat is very inspiring! I have found a coat fabric that is reversible. How do you think this trench coat would sew up without a lining? Thank you!

I just bookmarked this review to come back to when I finally get around to making mine. Excellent job, great looking coat. Thanks for all the effort you went to to write this thorough review.

This is very well made and wonderful looking. I am encouraged to keep going on mine. Sorry the fabric was disappointing but I think it will be so much faster the second time you make it. Great job!

Wow! You did a great job! It looks like it would take a long time to get it so perfect. Wish the lining picture would have been bigger....would've loved to see it. Now can't wait to see the waterproof one. ;-)

It's hard to beat a great trench, and yours is just that. It looks like it would be very flattering on, too. I know what you mean about so many BUTTONS. :o) Sometimes I end up with more in the buttons than I had in the fabric!

Thanks for all the positive comments. I have tried to make the photo bigger and hopefully it is OK now. I am afraid I don't know how to fix the link to the pattern itself, but I think the pattern is out of print, maybe that is why it isn't showing?

Great review, but as the others have said, would love to see the pictures larger.

Great looking coat. Your pics need to be resized and also your link to the pattern doesn't work. I'm looking forward to your revised review.

From what I can see it looks great but would love to see a bigger pic as it's too small. But from one Yorkshire lass to another Great Review!

Your photo is coming up about 1 cm in size. I'd love to see the details. The photogallery pic looks awesome.
