I'm just making this, I'm going to make the sleeve tabs look like yours, thanks for the pics. Love the coat, great colour combo.

Beautiful trench coat. The fit is great for you. I love the pattern AND that great shimmering fabric. How neat to find it in in a bargain bin! The buttons are perfect. You are making me want to try a trench for fall! Also, thank for the great blog pictorial on making the lining corner at the hem!

WOW! I'm seeing all these BEAUTIFUL coats and jackets on PR lately, my FAVORITE clothing item. I LOVE your coat, every little thing about it: the fabric, the details (of which I appreciate the UP-CLOSE-AND-PERSONAL pictures), the way you covered the belt buckle, your buttons, and the SUPERB construction.

very nice - I have wanted to make this trench every since I saw it in the magazine - so glad someone has done all that work for me - I think I'll just enjoy yours instead!
