Incredible! I have not mustered up the courage yet to try a BWOF pattern, as far as I've got is tracing a pattern. You are inspiring! Thank You

Fabulous work again, Louella! What a really stylish jacket for a young girl. Heather must be the best dressed girl by far in her Kindergarten class. She looks adorable in this jacket.

Really lovely coat, and a lovely little girl wearing it! Coats still seem so intimidating to me, so I especially appreciate your strategy of setting a goal per day to get this done.

Lovely jacket. You probably wish she wouldn't grow for a while. Very neat that she picked out the pattern herself.

This jacket is superb! Your daughter is absolutely adorable! She is one stylin' little girl in this pea coat. I've added a few lines to the Go-Go's song. "Doesn't matter what they'll pay, (at Nordy's, etc.) I can make it anyway, hey hey hey~ Our seams are sealed." Do they give a 'Bested Dress' award in Kindergarten?

That is a beautiful jacket for a beautiful and stylin' girl. I have been looking forward to your review of this jacket. How do you find the time to do so much sewing? Great review too, I loved all the links to RTW styles. I bet Heather will be sewing along with you in a couple more years.

What a wonderful review! Your daughter is absolutely precious and the jacket and skirt are perfect. I wish I had been sewing things other than Halloween costumes when my kids were little. She looks so proud. You chronicled the process so beautifully, well done on those pockets!

Louella, I LOVE this little jacket! No wonder Heather doesn't want to take it off. :o) I would love one of these in my size too -- ha! Your welt pockets look SOOOO nice. I've had Kenneth King's new book on my wish list at Amazon for quite a while now. I NEED to get it. I just LOVE this little outfit, and you've sewn it so beautifully! :o))

Wow, what a gorgeous jacket! Heather is styling in her very fashionable plaid peacoat. Love that you broke down the construction process for us. Thank you!

That is adorable! And what a little cutie Heather is in her new outfit! It will look great in denim, too.

Your daughter is one very stylish young lady! What an excellent review. I appreciated the wisdom in pacing yourself while sewing this project.... good for me to remember when sewing a time consuming project! The results are SUPERB! So...... when will your "Mommy Jacket" be done so that you can both wear the jackets in style together?!
