LauraLo, what an excellent review! You've recapped all possibilities of lining and weighting a coat, with wonderful references. Now your coat! Sublimely gorgeous. Neither you nor coat could possibly look more beautiful! -Lily

It looks really cute but for me the large picture is really fuzzy so I can't quite make out the detail.

Lovely coat - it is perfect for spring! Thanks for the informative review!

Fabulous! What else is there to say? (but I'll find more ... ;) I think that the decision to quilt the jersey lining to the boucle was a stroke of genius. It'll act as one and be easy to wear. Otherwise I think I'd worry about the lining pulling away from the boucle all the time. And as always, you look mahvelous dahling.

Very informative review. And you look so stylish in your new coat with the dark sunglasses! Like Jackie-O!

Its fabulous. What an interesting idea to quilt a jersey lining in this - but I can see it must have been a nightmare to do after the coat was assembled! It looks great both inside and out though.
