Beautiful. Iiked the look of this pattern from the start, and your review has confirmed it for me. Gorgeous glad you saved it from the moths...and very, very chic and stylish on you.

You look great in this. Thanks for your very helpful review. I bought this pattern noting that it was rated as easy and thought it looked unstructured.

Beautiful. I'm so glad you caught this fabric before the moths finished it off! I have this pattern out with some very old stash fabric at the ready. Just like you mentioned on my review, we often pick the same patterns. Thanks for such a helpful review.

So pretty! It's good you were able to save the fabric and get a great piece from it! I have this pattern cut out and ready to go--now when will I get to sew it?!

This was one of those rare patterns that I bought when there was no review because I loved it so much. Now I'm not so sure I want to attempt it because of your honest review. At least I know what to expect if/when I give it a try. Thank you! I have to say, yours looks beautiful.

I love this pattern, but was concerned that it might be overwhelming on a slender person. But I was wrong--it looks stunning on you. What an elegant outfit you have created.

I'm drawn to coats with great collars as well. I love this pattern and yours looks great (like all your reviews!). Thanks so much for the review - it will help greatly when I give this one a go.

Hmm. I thought this pattern was supposed to be easy. Your review will be helpful when I decide to make it. You look spectacular in this coat.

Carolyn, that coat is so stylish. I love it! And congrats on a great save. Love the fabric. Don't you feel good after having used a well aged fabric. Double congrats on that.

Great effort - first in rescuing your fabric from those moths, then in placing your pattern pieces to avoid the holes and finally in constructing such a beautiful coat! You wear it well. Lovely work!

Beautiful! I am so glad you were able to get to your fabric before the moths totally had their way with it. I own this pattern, having been fooled by that 'easy' classification. I think I'm going to leave it in the drawer for at least a few years. Thanks for a very helpful review.
