fabulous coat. I've just made a full length coat, vogue pattern. Seeing your coat has made me consider making another in this style. I agree with you that you need to put in more tailoring techniques but patterns don't do that becauses it makes them too difficult for the average sewer.

Everything about this coat is PERFECT. The collar frames your face beautifully, and will be warm when buttoned up. The LENGTH, I especialy like (as shown off to perfection by your tights and boots). The COLOR is right in season, and yet will never go out of style. And the SHAPING is so flattering, not too loose, not too snug. And the final touch is the EXPERT TAILORING. A winner on all fronts! :o)

It's a great, versatile coat and it fits you well. You also look good in it, a plus of course. I do not like cut on facings on coats and jackets either as it really limits your construction.
