Beautiful coat and lovely job. It looks great on you. Sounded like a real cliff hanger there for awhile as you squeezed all the pieces onto the 3 yds. Glad it worked out.

I fully appreciate the huge amount of work this coat was! Well done, it looks very sharp. Wool gaberdine was a smart choice. Good idea to line the gun flap - did you do the storm flap as well. Next time I would definitely line the storm flap as it doesn't sit that well with a small hem. Like you I have often been intrigued by Burda's method of attaching a collar, as I have always been taught the traditional method of attaching the undercollar to the coat, and the top collar to the facing. One time I tried it Burda's way and it came out exactly the same. Still, I use the traditional method because I am more used to it and it's easier for me to be accurate. Very well done. A splendid coat, whether you win the competition or not, a total winner.

Mary Nana, thank you for your kind comments! Your review was an inspiration to try this pattern. I did self line the storm flap as well, as it just seemed the right way to do it.

Fantastic coat! And it looks like you'll get so much use out of it (brrr cold!!). Love the shoulder tabs and other details, looks really great!

Thanks for this wonderful review of your progress and great pics of the beautiful trench coat. I'll save this for reference, and perhaps someday live somewhere rainy again. Love the fit of this and your choice of gabardine.

Becca - are your sure you shouldn't make your rating 'Advanced'??? Thank you for a fantastic review. I love your trenchcoat. I particularly the love the colour and the fit is amazing. Well done. I've voted for you in the contest. I do hope you win.

This looks beautiful and better yet warm :-). But your under collar should be cut on the bias, not the cross-grain.

Awesome detail work. Makes me miss wearing coats. Reminds me of a London Fog Trench coat that I wore out litteraly with all the details in the back and on top. A classic jacket and great fabric choice..
