Great review -- I picked up this pattern the other day based on your review and the tips that you gave. I have never made a coat for myself and this was the one I liked for next winter's coat. Going to work on a muslin and then will go looking for fabric. Thanks again for a thorough review

You look so pretty in your new coat, Nancy. I think it's PERFECT. Look how nicely it falls in the picture where you're wearing it open: PERFECT. I'm so glad you included that picture, too, because I'm ALWAYS tempted by this pattern, but I don't care for the real full swing style coats on me, and I was unsure about this one. As I see it on you, now I think I've GOT to have it! The collar frames your face beautifully, and I love your mix of fabrics!

Beautiful job. I made a raglan-sleeve coat recently, too, and I love the look (and how much easier they are to do). SB's instructions for hemming and bagging the lining are great, I use them on everything now. Great result, wear this one with pride.

Beautiful, Nancy! As usual, your review is fantastically thorough and very helpful. I am in the middle of a different Vogue coat, but will read Sandra's bagging technique before I get to that point and see if it's helpful for me. Gorgeous coat!

Wow. I'm wooping it up over this one! You look great! the leopard print is a total eye-catcher without being overstated. The whole coat is stunning. The lining is really classy too.

Nancy, this is so great. I love the fabrics you chose. And, how clever to reverse the pattern photo. I think this will really suit you.

You inspire me to try a coat again! Love that dramatic collar with the fur. Thanks for the heads-up on the fine points of the pattern.

I tried this on at one of SB workshops and it was a great coat - very flattering. Yours is terrific!

It looks fabulous! I love that you've essentially made the reverse of the one in the pattern photo...

Nancy, I totally agree with you about coats being far easier to make than jackets. Your version is beautiful, the details are great. Thanks for a terrific review. Sue
