Wow, this is more spectacular than the pouty Burda picture. Fantastic work, thanks for sharing something so beautiful.

I cannot believe the amount of work you put into this! Brilliant technique ideas to make it reversable; I've saved your blog to read more details later. Your daughter is one lucky lady!!!

This might be the most amazing garment I've ever seen. I adore this coat, the fabrics and your workmanship. Then, as an added bonus, your review is so thorough and helpful. Thanks!

That is AMAZING!!!! Thank you for the detailed instructions. This pattern has been sitting on my back burner to do, but it may have to move to the front very quickly.

Cute coat-dress! Yes, I was eyeing all of those lovely Cache silks, too! You've created a beauty with this one.

Well done. The details are lovely.

H-O-L-Y m-a-c-k-e-r-e-l.... This is stunning. Of all the delicious details, the "edges" photo probably thrilled me the most. The thought process and then the exquisite execution -- I just love it. Wish I could have seen you as an "overstuffed teddy bear" :-)) The fabrics are spectacular. Please do post photos of her wearing it. I agree wholeheartedly with Annette -- you need to boost your ranking, and we need a 'Birgitte' ranking over and above couture/expert! I wish you and your family a peaceful and Merry Christmas!

Absolutely stunning. This coat is on my to-sew list but I live in Miami so I have no NEED for it. I don't care though, I will make it for next winter.

Wow! Amazing coat! She will love it!

All I want for Christmas is....ONE garment sewn by Birgitte! Unbelievably beautiful dress, lucky, lucky dd. Please post a picture of her wearing it. Excellent review, as always. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

That is simply amazing. The construction and design are perfect, and then add in that color--wow.

What an absolute labor of love this is. I'm sure your daughter will love it - it is gorgeous!

What a beautiful trenchcoat! Your daughter is very lucky! Thanks for a great review.

AND ... good grief! You need to promote yourself and up that skill level ranking. We need a "Birgitte" level right above couture/expert. :o)

Breathtaking and exquisite workmanship, as always! Thanks for the ultra detailed review too.

You have OUTDONE even YOURSELF on this FABULOUS coat dress. I can't WAIT to see pictures of your daughter in it. I wish I could be there when she gets it. :o) Your reviews are so far above the rest of us it's just ridiculous -- ha! Your pictures tell the story through every step of the process. YOUR designs exemplify why I say I DON'T strive for ready-to-wear ANYTHING. :o)

Exquisite! Love the colour and the lining.

That is absolutely gorgeous. I love the color, and the combination of fabrics - how cool that it's reversible. You made a great pattern even better. If it doesn't fit your daughter, I bet you could auction it off here. Beautiful.
