Your intriguing trench coat is fabulous! I love the contrasting bias binding. Have fun at your ASG meeting!

Love what you did with that wonderful Fabric mart fabric. High fashion and very intriguing.

Your coat is so cool! And I love your sense of adventure, you spy you! Beautiful rendering of the trench coat - fun, and unique. You look amazing in the coat. Great job! Thanks for all the information, too.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! Dorothy, I plan to bring this coat to the ASG meeting on Friday. If you bring your Marcy Tilton and Zona jackets out of the same fabric, we can have a Vera Wang Scribble Print Fest. ;)

Well I guess I'll have to make a trench now - essential for my life of intrigue.:) I love how you broke up the pattern with the black binding and belt. I just made a Zona jacket using the same fabric and never thought to edge it with contrasting binding. It would have looked much better. I agree that even if you don't intend to tie the belt, it looks great in the back. Thanks for this great review.

Thanks for the detail shots -- it is very helpful seeing the comparison of the pocket sizes. I will keep my eyes open for you in your lovely jacket when I am in Fabrix ;)
