Beautiful coat! I think your coat should get you through the winter. As a fellow Albertan who has also made a wool coat, I can say that with your flannel backed lining, interlining, and long skirt, you will be plenty toasty.

Love! Love and want!! I think it is really for the best, having this coat so closely-fitted in the bodice. You need to play off the incredible volume of the bottom. "100% Fibre" is killing me by the way -- as if you wondered some percentage of the fabric might in fact be, say, string cheese. Anyway, your coat is gorge. WEll worth the effort.

I snagged this pattern as soon as it went on sale after seeing it, and am working up the nerve to go at it. I have a month or two here ... as long as it's done for January. Yours is absolutely lovely, and an inspiration!

I LOVE it! I've got this pattern and am trying to work up the nerve to sew it. Is it my imagination, or is it longer in the back than in the front? I love the way the hemline flows.

@ Karen Easter: you have sharp eyes! ;). It did end up shorter at the front; I had some problems sewing the front and facings together evenly, due in part to my interfacing screw-up and in part to general incompetence, and wound up thinking the front was two inches longer, trimming it, then discovering I had somehow stretched the front piece, ripping it out, re-sewing, and having to trim the facing in turn. I was not a happy camper for several days. ;). So the pattern itself is pretty even all around. @Marec---LOL I only just screwed up my courage and switched it up from "Advanced Beginner"! @ everyone else---again, thanks so much!

I love this pattern, you did a wonderful job! I have just ordered it and I'm waiting for it's delivery. Do you have any idea how long it took before the coat was completely finished? Since I would like to have mine finished before the real cold of the winter comes... Preferably before the beginning of December. Unfortunately, I don't have that many hours a week that I can spend on it...

Mieuw, I worked *very* slowly on this coat, so I wouldn't take my time-frame as standard; I did a muslin back in the spring, cut it out in August, and did most of my sewing over the course of September (interrupted by various other projects). If you are working steadily, I think you could have it done in under a month, even at just a few hours a day.

This is a fantastic coat for you! I love the wool. I think that I would try to interface the coat instead of that front facing. I'd like to make that coat for me. However, I am only 5'1" tall. I think it would be a lot of material for my height. Yes, I love the boots and the scarf with this. Very Chic! Keep challenging yourself with "new for you" patterns. Way to go!

This coat is sooo gorgeous! If I didn't already have an ankle-length wool peacoat, I'd make it in wool. But I need a lighter weight raincoat and just got 9 yards of taffeta-like water resistant fabric from Fashion Fabric Club. Do the more experienced seamstresses here think this would work in a lightweight fabric?

So... TanitIsis, how did the coat work for the Canadian winter? I went looking for your review because I think I'm finally going to sew this pattern, and yours was so beautiful!
