Lovely coat. I'm glad you were able to cut around the moth holes. Thanks for the detailed review.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?!

You look fantastic in this style and color. Thanks for a great review...I'm going to wait for my skills to catch up to this pattern :-)

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.

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.
