I love this pattern, I think you did a great job on the topstitching. Can you tell me how I can get this pattern?

Wow this is absolutely superb. Your topstitching looks perfect and the fabric is amazing (I actually thought it was leather in the small picture).

WHY am I laughing as I read your description of working with this fabric? :o)) I know it's not funny, BUT I've been there, done that, so I'm getting tickled anyway! This jacket was so worth your extra efforts, though. I especially admire all that trapunto stitching. ONE WAVY line on that, and you're a goner (about like working an algebra problem). :o)

This coat is TDF. It is so smart, trendy, and beautifully made. Your workmanship is outstanding, to include some of the nicest topstitching I've ever seen. The stitching on the back, curving down to the belt is gorgeous. Congratulations on such a professional looking garment; it looks truly PERFECT!

I am speechless, your jacket is so wonderful and the workmanship superb. Thanks for the detailed review and the inspiration. I am going to hunt up that issue.

Your end result does not show one bit of the frustration that you had with this project. Awesome jacket.

Fabulous! Someday I will pluck up the courage to try to follow with my own version of this, but you will be a hard act to follow!

Beautiful. I can't see any problems with the top stiching, so you must have made it work.
