Lovely on you - great proportions. Reminds me of the lead actress in Enchanted April.

Looks wonderful on you. Much nicer to see on a real person. I have that fabric too - mmm....

Just too incredible, Ann. You're a genius in combining fabric and pattern and I'm now dedicated to paying close attention to your choices, being the total deunce I am!

Fabulous! I love it on you!

MaryBeth, I bought the fabric last December from FabricMartFabrics.com for only $1.99/yd. Total cost for coat $5.00! I think it may be a home dec fabric.

Your review makes me want to try one of her patterns, although maybe something not quite as dramatic to start with. Your coat is really beautiful! I also love your necklace - it really pulls the whole look together!

Ann, you've done it again--made the perfect garment to showcase a piece of spectacular fabric. Great job! I would love to be a fly on the wall and peek into your closet--I bet it's filled with equally fantastic garments--but then there's always that flyswatter thing to worry about...

Beautiful coat, Ann! I've been chased off by the one size, too. I can't say enough good things about the fabric you've chosen. Too wonderful! Where/when did you find it? Great review with excellent pictures and details well documented. Thanks again, Ann

I didn't reduce the length at all. When I reduced the circumference I just folded straight up and down each pattern piece so I had no redrafting or changing of angles. Very simple process to make the coat narrower.

I am 5'4" and reduced the length even more than Ann and it still worked. I also reduced the circumference extensively. That, however, required a lot of redrafting of angles. I probably get more compliments on this jacket than anything I have mede. Ann is right, it is dramatic looking. Ann, your coat is wonderful. It shows off the drape and your double sided fabric perfectly. You can certainly wear this style.

Mudcat: I am only 5'3" tall. The trick is to fold out the extra width and be sure the fabric drapes well.

Ann, your coat is fantastic. It is very dramatic but stylish and wearable. It looks great on you.

That sure looks nice on you! Your fabric is perfect for it.

Your coat is lovely, Ann. It looks good and your fabric choice was an excellent one. I like this design but the one size scared me off. I'd swim in it.
