Wowzer! You PR'ers make me laugh, with all the envy vibes! It is rare to find a man that is nice enuf to do things for you, and sew to boot! We female PR'ers are lucky to have a male counterpart! Wish we had more!..

Wonderful! I envy your girlfriend. (But if I ever need someone to watch football for me, my husband's all over it!)

Tom everything you make looks so professional! You seem to think of everything. Great job, and what a lucky girl!

Thanks, everyone. ReBecca, the interfacing at the hem gives a little more body, and makes the bottom of the coat hold it's shape better. Adding the interfacing and reducing the width at the bottom makes Katy's coat look sort of like she just did a spin. Thisphoto shows the two treatments side-by-side. Mary's fabric is nicer :(.

Hi: you are right, this Vogue pattern is a copy of an Armani from last season. You did a FAB job! Might need one myself!

After seeing this (and Mary Cargill's) at PR Weekend I got the pattern too. It would be so much more convenient if I had a boyfriend to make it for me...

You made a wonderful coat. What a lucky girlfriend. Your review covering your constructions changes is very helpful and creative. I have this pattern in my stash and will definitely refer back to your review .

Love the coat - very professionally done. Especially like the lining strap to hold the left front - nice touch!

What a beautiful coat--I love the closures and the bright, happy lining, also the welt pocket you designed. Very nice job.

What a stunning coat! I'm impressed with you putting the pockets in to accomodate her commuting needs. Great job!

Wonderful work - I so admire your efforts!! Thanks for a really helpful review with some really good ideas we can use
Re Becca said... (12/9/07 8:03 PM) Reply
Another great coat! Thanks for the great construction details. Tell me, why did you chose to use the 4" interfacing strips on the hem and collar? Great job on the pocket too, aren't welt pockets fun!

Great coat - she is a lucky woman!...I think that if you and Katy break up you won't be on the market for long!!! Plus, that appears to be a Sox cap you are wearing..
