Thank you for an excellent review. The coat turned out beautifully. I also appreciate your mention of the references you used. I have Cabrera's book, but I am not familiar with Kenneth King's "Cool Couture." I will now have to get it.

Lovely coat - I noticed right away that you had lowered the pockets. Good call. I wish I had this issue as my son would love a coat like this.

Gorgeous pea coat. I feel fortunate my husband doesn't peruse PR, else he'd be asking for this one!
12/20/09 8:49 PM
My DBF's jacket is almost done and I'm not letting him see this review or I know what my next sewing project will be. Beautiful work.
12/20/09 9:06 PM
Oh, my goodness, thank you all for the very kind compliments! I love working with wool and a bit of steam ironing--it always seems to get great results.
12/20/09 11:59 PM
Your son looks very handsome in his new coat. Your skill really shows - I appreciate all the wonderful photos.
12/21/09 1:13 AM
Incredible! Great looking coat, and your son looks very handsome in it! I agree, removing the belt and lowering the pockets is a huge improvement.
12/21/09 10:18 AM
Great looking coat/handsome son.
12/21/09 2:46 PM
Are you kidding me? I am amazed at this coat! Thank you for reviewing this pattern and showing us this wonderful coat!
12/22/09 12:54 PM
Sleek and chic looking coat on your adorable son! His smile shows that all of your efforts are worth it!
12/22/09 3:06 PM
I have trouble following the Burda pattern's and felt like this write up gave me the permission to just do it..."MY WAY!" Sewing with patterns are a guide and not always the only way....so if you have some basic skills you should be able to put a garment together with just the pattern, some people don't even need patterns, just pictures to inspire them! It did motivate me to take out my old Burda patterns and view them with a different 'eye'! Thanks! A very sharp looking, long lasting stylish coat!
12/25/09 11:03 PM
What a fine looking jacket on a fine looking young man. Really beautiful work, Mom.
12/26/09 3:08 AM
Awesome. And you cranked this out in just a few days???? I am full of admiration. Great design, great workmanship. Well done.
12/31/09 5:06 PM
This jacket is too sweet! You did a fantastic job tackling that Burda pattern and it makes me want to get this pattern and make one for my hubby!
12/31/09 11:09 PM
Nice coat - and thank you for the useful tips.

Late to the game, but have to pipe up to that I absolutely love this gorgeous, impeccably crafted coat. It looks so stylish on your very handsome son. Thanks for all the details, references and inspiration!

Fabulous coat! You did such a great job on the construction.
1/7/10 7:18 PM
What a really nice coat!
1/7/10 7:49 PM
Fantastic coat, it looks great on your son. Nice details. And what a great deal on your fabric.
1/7/10 9:08 PM
You got my vote, that's fabulous!
1/7/10 11:15 PM
This got my vote. Absolutely gorgeous coat and it suits your handsome boy!
1/9/10 9:01 AM
Coat? What coat? First I saw a handsome young man and then I saw the amazing coat. Great fit!
1/18/10 6:24 PM
I saw this review photo in the newsletter and was very impressed. You did an amazing job on this and he looks great in it!
1/19/10 10:15 AM
You did a fantastic job (all the way around). This coat looks like it came from an upscale department store and to say that you paid $5/yd for the fabric, what a steal! Your son wears the coat very well. Job well done! :-)
1/21/10 3:14 PM
Great review, and a very good-looking coat (and son) !
1/21/10 6:09 PM
1/21/10 6:36 PM
What an expert job! And the model is quite handsome...expert job as well :)
1/22/10 10:34 AM
congrats on the win! It's an amazing coat (and I love your yard)
1/26/10 5:08 PM
What a beautiful coat! Looks like he will cherish this coat for years!!

I LOVE this coat! I am thinking of making a pea coat for my son and found your tips really helpful. Of course, he's only 7, but still, no reason for it not to be nice. I hope he grows up as handsome and grateful as your boy!

I'm just about to embark on sewing a Pea Coat for my son and this review is most helpful, thank you
