This is a truly beautiful coat ! You should be very proud of your great job.

Your coat has turned out PERFECT-A-MUNDO! I love every little thing about it, including all that TOPSTITCHING on such a heavy fabric! The color is MADE for you, and the fit of your coat is JUST RIGHT. I love it with the scarf, too. :o) What's next? Are you going to whip up a coat for Miss Jenna? :o)) CONGRATULATIONS on your FIRST COAT EVER (for yourself, I mean)!

Absolutely beautiful! You did it, you made yourself a coat! Now I need to suck it up and finally make myself a coat too. ;-)

I have to get this issue of Ottobre. I adore the pea coat and your review has added yet another project to the list! Well done.

Beautiful! Coats can be such a intimidating project. You did it very well. Wear it with pleasure.

A gorgeous coat, and no doubt very warm. Well done.
10/12/10 4:17 AM
Beautiful work! Your peacoat is just gorgeous and the colour and the fabric look sumptuous. Thanks for the info about the Sew Stylish article on bagging a lining too, I'm going to track that down.
10/12/10 4:50 AM
That is such a beautiful coat! The fit is very flattering on you. Gorgeous!
10/12/10 5:40 AM

You did a fantastic job for your first coat! It looks amazing on you. Great color and style. You've done the hard part -- now go out there and get your hugs!
10/12/10 8:46 AM
My goodness! I turn my back for one second and the next thing I know you've made an entire winter coat, posted a review and gotten zillions of compliments! All so well deserved. Congratulations on your first adult coat. I know how challenging a project that is, but your meticulous sewing skills have carried you through with flying colors. The fabric is gorgeous and the result is so lovely.
10/12/10 8:51 AM
Wow, you have sewn such a beautiful coat out of the most wonderful fabric. I can imagine how scrumptious and lovely it must feel to wear. Fantastic job...and what a very special friend that Annette is!

10/12/10 9:23 AM
Just beautiful! Love the color and the classic style.
10/12/10 9:44 AM
Nice work on the coat! I haven't made a coat in many years, but yours is inspiring. I have this issue and have been admiring that pattern, so thanks for reviewing, and especially the reminder about how not to cut the facings. (A hand-sewn lining is super nice anyway ;-)) It's nice to see it made up and it looks great on you. I might just have the motivation to tackle it now!
10/12/10 9:55 AM
Christa, your new coat is stunning. That lovely color is perfect for you, and the fit is impeccable. Ooooohhhh ---- cashmere ---- must feel scrumptious, warm, and light. What an inspiration you are!
10/12/10 10:11 AM
That coat is just lovely and looks beautiful on you. Enjoy wearing it!

Wow - that is a fantastic coat - so warm and cosy too. I have that issue of Ottobre, must have a proper look at it.
10/12/10 11:06 AM
Miss Christa, you have certainly made an outstanding looking coat. That lt. peach color is TDF and so flattering on your beautiful face. Every single stitch on that garment is just perfect and so well suited to you. Your friend Annette knows how to treat you to some special fabric!!!! She's a keeper. Pat yourself on the back for you seemed to whiz through this lovely project.
10/12/10 11:29 AM
What a fabulous coat! I liked this style very much when I saw it in the magazine and yours is a perfect realisation. Annette has picked a real peach of a fabric for you (sorry for the pun!), the colour suits you so well and is so lovely and cheering for winter. This coat is going to be so cosy and hardwearing but will always look feminine and elegant. I love it.
10/12/10 12:53 PM
Very very pretty coat! What great fit and fabric!
10/12/10 3:48 PM
This is really perfect. The color, the cut, the fit. It's obvious that you took your time and do beautiful work. I'm working my way up to a coat. Now, how do I get Annette to be MY friend?
10/12/10 4:08 PM
I am amazed that this is your first coat for yourself! It looks so professionally made. And that fabric is to die for. It really suits your coloring. Welcome to the wonderful world of sewing coats- they are my absolute favorite thing to make!
10/12/10 4:11 PM
Your coat is beautiful!
10/12/10 4:17 PM
Beautifully put together, enjoy wearing it!
10/12/10 5:34 PM
That is such a great and classic jacket! You'll wear that forever!
10/12/10 5:51 PM
So lovely! Your coat must be a pleasure to wear!
10/12/10 9:21 PM
What an amazingly beautiful jacket. You did a fantastic job and it looks wonderful on you.
10/12/10 9:35 PM
How nice is that!!!! Cashmere.....could you ever go wrong? Uhm.....don't think so! Lol! Nice choice of fabric, great fit, good color, very nice work.
10/13/10 1:35 PM
Your coat is absolutely lovely, and it fits you beautifully. Now that you've made one adult coat, there will be no stopping you!

Beautiful coat! You are so smart to use that wonderful fabric for a classic style.
