I think that once you were it and see how much everyone loves it, you will grow to love it too. I predict that you will get tons of compliments on this, it is quite striking.

Nancywin said...
Very beautiful on you. I think the style looks very classy/couture and you will get lots of compliments. The style suits you, even though it may not be what you're used to. Very nice.

Promise to wear it at least twice! It looks really cute on you. Honestly, I can't see anything looking bad on you. Wear it with pride!

Dear "Ugly Duckling," I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but ARE YOU NUTS? :O) This coat is an A-1, CLASS ACT, and so are you IN it! I LOVE it. That back belt detail just really makes it. My only complaint is: THREE MEASLY PICTURES???? I only have THREE MEASLY NOSEPRINTS on my computer screen! :o)

Oh My! I have so much fun on this web site! Thanks readers for all of the comments thus far. Okie2thdoc, I think I can wear it at least twice...LOL. Annette1, ROF LOL! Sorry about the nose prints on your monitor. The camera that I have is only a few steps from the graveyard! But I will try to add more detail shots on the morrow. :)

Annette1 said...
Well, okay, that's more like it. Why didn't you tell us you needed a new camera? We could have all pooled our money and gotten you one! (I always buy refurbished ones.) :o)

Beautiful coat! You sew the most gorgeous coats and jackets! I'd hardly call this view the ugly duckling. I like it better than the other two version. Excellent job as usual.

you are the queen of coats! this one is a beauty. love it in white. nice job.

Kay Y said...
For heavens sake! Wear this! Your modifications to collar, sleeves and hem are perfect for your proportions. I'm with Annette and Belinda - entirely disagree that this is the "ugly duckling" view!!

That coat looks great on you! I love your modifications and how you made it work for you! Don't toss it in the Salvation Army pile yet! LOL

See, I think it looks wonderful on you. I agree about the lining. I didn't bag mine because I was working with a very slippery silk charmeuse, but I think in most cases you can bag it with great results (like yours!)

You look great in the coat

This coat is absolutely gorgeous on you! You've done a fabulous job on it. Beautiful fabric and color choices. I feel it suits you to a "T" from A2Z. Thanks for such an informative review.

Fantastic job my dear! I think a cream colored coat is so classy and yours is fantastic. I'm not sure I would've looked at that pattern twice but it really turned out very classy looking. Great job on the contest too!
