Thanks, unfinishedprojects ... Of course, now I see the pattern number at the top of the page. Oops. Still getting used to finding things on PatternReview.

Your coat is beautiful! Can you tell me the pattern number? (The Butterick link is broken and the number isn't visible on the envelope photo in the other photo.) Thanks for any help you can provide.

It looks so authentically vintage, I am sure no one would ever guess you made it. Great work!

jlg- the fabric is modern. It does have a very vintage look to it though ('60's?)

Great review; beautiful coat! Love your fabric choice too. Now all you need is a really cute brooch on that coat :)

This fabric works great with this. Is it vintage as well? You did a beautiful job sewing this.
