Thanks for all the compliments: this site is great for the 'ole ego!. Mudcat, I chose a medium because I knew the coat was unlined and figured I'd be wearing with heavy sweaters underneath. Now that I know how large it is, I'm sure a small would have been sufficient. (nothing like a scientific approach to these things!) Vroom, vroom, love the saying "work the look". Have not heard it before. I don't recall seeing any of your sewing on here, and you've got me interested. When was the last time you posted one? Thanks again everyone.

You are right Harriet. This coat is for tall people who can carry the flair of the coat off. The whole beauty of this coat is in its sweep and carriage, kind of like runway models needing to be tall. The grey color goes excellently with your silver hair. I love how you carried the grey detail down to your stockings and shoes. That is such a nice complet. You go girl!!! Work the look!!!

Awsome coat! I'd certainly wear something like this, and I'm only 5'4".

It looks great on you! How did you choose your size? I know this line tends to run large.

Lovely coat Harriet! Years ago, I made a coat out of white boiled wool that looked almost exactly like this one. It was, however, a Vogue Designer pattern -- kind of makes me wonder where Sandra got her inspiration. I am tall, and the style suited me very well. I wore it till it fell apart.

Looks wonderful and I love the leather trim. I have made this coat and I'm only 5'3". I think it works on a short person as long as the fabric is a bit drapey.

This is so stylish on you. I would worry that it would look like a bathrobe on me, but it looks like very expensive RTW fashion on you. Nice work!

Very nice looking coat, Harriet. Very becoming.

You are right. At 5'1" Id be a big piece of walking fabric in that style, but it looks just fabulous on you! I love the line of the coat especially the collar. Beautiful

Love your coat! It has a 1920's flavor to it that I just love!

I'll second that. You have beautiful taste and so right for your figure (also your yellow Miyake dress).
