Gorgeous coat - lucky Katy!

Kristen said...
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..

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!

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

Beautiful coat, Tom. You are very good at sewing coats....must be your specialty ;-) Very flattering on your girlfriend, too.

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 .

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...

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!

Tom P said...
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 :(.

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