You are no longer a beginner. Just go ahead right now and change your status. It doesn't have to do with length of time, but what you have acheived. This coat is beautiful! You might need to get a new sewing machine. I had a lurcher and it seemed to know when it would be the worst time to accelerate. You have inspired be to try a coat.

Thanks everyone ! I've updated my profile as "advanced beginner" Not Having anyone around who sews (well except for all the wonderful people here!) and having started not long ago, I don't really have a clue of my "level". Thanks again !

Your coat is too sweet! The color is lovely! I'm looking forward to making this same coat. I have the fabric for the exterior, but I'm still looking for the perfect fabric for the lining.
