Absolutely gorgeous! Good idea to take it in. Thanks for the details on working with loose fabric.

It is marvelous and I am a houndstooth girl so it definitely caught my eye.

My goodness, you did a good job reining in the volume on that pattern. Your coat looks gorgeous. What were they thinking to draft it so large? It's perfect as you have made it.

Beautiful coat! If I were up north, I'd want to make one myself. What a shame your pictures are cut off at your neckline. I imagine you are smiling while you show it off!!

Oh my goodness, this is goodness!!!! I love it! I'm just curious as to how long you think it took to make this? And, are you really an intermediate sewist? Just fantabulous. Be careful of the racoons - they're OK in your pockets as long as you feed them first. *heh*

It is not recommended to put angry raccoons in the pockets, even if they fit! Seriously, this is one fabulous coat. Love it!

i agree, very nice, very retro, cute fabric!
FreyaStark said... (9/13/09 6:20 PM) Reply
It's fabulous! Well done.
