All your efforts have resulted in a WONDERFUL coat. I LOVE your fabric, and silk lined, no less!

Stylish pattern, lovely fabric- and you've learned lots about sewing- what could be better?

I like the princess lines of this coat and your version looks great. It sounds like you learned so much (aside from the frustration) from it's construction.

Thanks susan, I'll have to check that one out!

Lovely jacket! If you are looking for the same kind of shape but with the princess seams ending at the shoulder rather than the armhole you could have a look at Butterick pattern 5425 (although this has slightly puffed sleeves).

I merely suggested allowing a little colour show through. DFR!!! 8P

Nice jacket. I like the short version also.

Truly lovely wool ... it's a shame the hem was such a nightmare for you. The buttons look great (no matter what Cat says ...)

This is going to be a great coat! Love the wool.

Yes, that does help. Actually, some parts of the pattern call for tacking-- other call for the french tacking that you mentioned after that. It's easy to google "french tack" though. And I knew what tailors tacks were, but I've usually seen them used as a temporary thing, in place of pins where the pins would distort the fabric.

In tailoring, the sleeve hem is basted about 1/4 inch from the folded edge to keep it from shifting while the hem is catch-stitched in place. Remove the basting after the hem is hand sewn. 'Tacking' means to loosely stitch together the seam allowances of the sleeve lining and garment sleeve at the shoulder and underarm junctions. A few fairly loose hand stitches joining the two seam allowances will keep the lining from coming out of the sleeve when it's pulled off or put on. This is not the couture method (which involves buttonhole stitching over several long threads) but will suffice in most cases. HTH.
