Wow, you did yet another great job in creating a beautiful garment. Thanks for all the links, too. I wasn't aware that Kathleen's book had sewing instructions. I thought it was only a business book. Your coat is gorgeous and the hand detail perfect. Thanks for a great, detailed review.

I love the jacket. Now I'll need to add another project to my list. Thanks also for the links to some of the more difficult techniques. It's the little hints and tips that really make a difference in home sewing.

Oh Goodness what a superb result. I especially like the hand-sewn top stitching AND the placement of the stitches at the hem. Great design detail.

Lauralo - you have a great talent for combining the zeitgeist of the moment into one superb garment, in this case your beautiful trench coat. Fabulous coat enhanced several notches by the brilliant hand saddle-stitching. I think the reverse colour scheme (white on black) would look terrific, too. Great work and great review. Thank you.

Absolutely beautiful. I've been thinking trenchcoat thoughts for a while and you've just pushed me to start thinking harder. Thanks for all the links and extras on how you did everything. I love the hand-sewn topstitching. It really adds that perfect extra to an already gorgeous trench.

Another fantastic trench! I am a fan of your Royal silk trench, and this white one ranks as high. The handstitching is an outstanding accent. Enjoy this beauty!

Your coat is gorgeous and your review is so helpful. I am pretty much self taught, and your reviews always send me to new teachers. Thanks for all the helpful links. You look smashing in this coat, by the way

What else can I say but I am in awe of your skills - a beautifully executed coat - all that hand topstitching! And a super clean apartment too ? You deserve an award. Love Winifred xx

LOVE the white with the black topstitching. I have a white leather jacket, and I'm always surprised that I never see anybody else with one. White's just so SMART looking. You look GREAT in your new trench!

I wish I could think of something original that has not already been said, but I am so in awe of your trenchcoat that my thoughts can only repeat what has been said. This coat is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Your techniques and links are so helpful. Your hand no less..brings such life to your trench. And you do lookk fabulous in white!

This is fabulous. You've inspired me to go with the hand topstitching on my latest jacket. I've been waffling. So happy to see you're back at your machine!

This is beyond well done - it is so professionally finished that I think in any haute couture store you would pay $$$$ for it - beautiful work - very very impressive.

Fabulous trench coat! Love it! I especially like your black, hand topstitching and buttons. The contrast really makes the coat. Incredible work!

You are a very talented designer. I'm certain it took hours to hand stitch the detail, but the results are very couture.
