Unbelievable. Your coat is amazing, beautiful, functional and luxurious all at the same time. I can't believe you rate yourself only intermediate, lol! What a gorgeous coat in every way and thank you for taking the time to detail your work-enjoy your warm coat!

You did an absolutely beautiful job on your coat! The pictures are quite helpful, but I'd love to have more details on your alterations, i.e. front seam pockets and box pleat in the back. The fur color to match your hat is very chic! Excellent review and lovely work on the coat :-)

Fantastic review & Fabulous workmanship. Thank you! I've had this pattern since 1993 - I love the classic styling. It's nice to know it's such a great pattern that makes up well.

Great job, Digs. Three coats in the sew-along, right? You are such an overachiever!

A very beautiful coat due to all your fine detailing. I love everything about it - but my favorite part is the back box pleat. Your review and photos were my sewing eye candy for the evening.

This coat is a work of art! ALL of your special touches, your EXPERT fitting, your WELL THOUGHT-OUT designs, are absolutely PERFECT. I've had this pattern for MANY years. The fact that it's STILL in the pattern books is a testament to its classic styling and overall design appeal. I LOVE your coat. :o)

Whew! I missed this because it has no thumbnail - Please Digs, show us the coat!!!! I'm especially keen to see the beautiful lining in situ, and the piping, and, well, all the details.

Your coat sounds absolutely fabulous, and from the muslin photos looks it as well. Would love to see the finished product. Know what you mean about strong-arming it through the machine!!
