Tini, I loved seeing this coat made up. I also really liked this coat in Threads, but I don't think I am good enough to make it yet. (Plus I don't have any coat fabrics in the stash.) Yours looks great, though!

I love this coat, and such a pretty shade of blue. I have got to try a coat pattern this coming year. Thanks for the tip about using fusible on batiste and then sewing in. I think that might help in some instances.

Wow, Tini, that is *beautiful*! So classically feminine and looks so cozy warm. I love your fabric choices. It reminds me so much of a lovely coat my mother used to have.

What a great coat! The drawing in Treads looked promising and your version really confirms it's a great design.

I am so glad to see your review of this pattern. I bought this pattern & was sad to see that no one had reviewed it yet. I am a beginner & was a bit nervous about sewing this. It really is a great pattern! I am making View B out of a very dark port or eggplant corduroy. I had put it aside a few weeks ago as it doesn't get cold enough in Florida to usually have a need for a winter coat & I just lost my momentum. Seeing your coat & having a cold front come through has me anxious to finish. This pattern has the best fit of anything I've made so far. All I need to do is add my lining & pockets. I really love the Neue Mode patterns. For those in North America...Denver Fabrics has the cheapest Neue Mode patterns I could find & great service (30% cheaper than other sites)...but no you have to look up the pattern # from another site. Great looking coat Tini & thanks for the motivation! P.S. to Hope K...if I can make this coat, you'll have no problem. I've only been sewing for 2 months & I am really surprised at how well mine is turning out. The instructions are good & there are some great sales for winter fabrics on the net as well as Joann's. I got my material for $1.50/yd at Joann's.

What a gret coat! I like your idea of putting the interfacing on the underlining.

I love your coat. Your fabric choice is so nice and adding the fur at the collar really makes the coat POP. Nice job.

Tini, I can picture you in this, and you look great in it! LOL The best thing about making outerwear is that you get to wear it alot - I hope you find plenty of opportunity to slip your coat on this winter, and many more to come.

*Gasp* Tini, it's BEAUTIFUL! How cool that you didn't need to totally fuse-interface this coat. Now your coat is still breathable. I'm going to remember this!

Great coat. Between your review & GaSouBelle's comments, this pattern sounds like a real winner.

This looks like a good pattern (having read your and GaSouBelle's comments). I like all the options, and the size range is good too. Unfortunately I also have two winter coats and think it would be silly to have more - although I'm dreaming about blue, pink and cream ones (three coats :o, not one in three colours).

I have this coat 1/2 done. The biggest problem for me was drawing the cutting lines. I am making it for my daughter who likes tight clothes so a tapered in the side panel a little. I hope to have it ready for hemming tomorow night, when daughter is showing up

Yeah! another inspiring coat review! Hopefully you won't have to be wearing it toooooo much longer this Spring. Glad to see the fake fur and to hear that it's cozy: have been wondering whether I'd like to use it on an attached coat collar or separately...

This is great! I also have this pattern waiting for Fall sewing. I'm glad to hear about the wearing ease, too. Now I just have to choose a fabric!
