You did a great job on this. I was always on the fence about this pattern which has been in my stash for awhile. Thanks to you, I now know what to do to 'chic' it up.

What a terrific casual jacket -- it looks wonderful on you. I have to agree that Joann's sweatshirt fleece is a great fabric. In fact I'm wearing a snap cardigan I made from it right now.

I have love & hate relationship with fleece fabric, it's super cozy and practical but not easy to make it stylish.....but you really changed my view on that, yours is very cute and not too casual, when I imagine wearing!!!

This is fleece? Wow... amazing. Really stylish. One of my friend says about you "Everything she makes looks awesome" And I completely agree.

Great review. The coat is just perfect for casual wear; I do love anything with a hood too.

I love this coat on you! It looks so comfy without looking frumpy. Great job. Yes, it does look better without the collar I think.

Love your fleecy coat! Nice job! I keep meaning to sew this pattern for my daughter as she lives in her RTW version. Fanastic review too! Very detailed with lots of info I like to know. I always enjoy seeing your smiling face and reading your reviews.
