Gorgeous coat!! You are too funny! Actually, I think the large and small houndstooth look kind of cool together! Happy Birthday!

Such pretty pieces. I'm not sure if they will take being worn together, but what ever elevates your fun level and doesn't hurt anyone, go for it. great coat.

Judy Mac - you and I think alike! My daughter said not to wear it together, but I think it's kinda hot! and I have a perfect pair of red pumps! I think I have earned the right to stand out in the crowd! I'm going to do it! LOL!

Thank you Ladies! I love PR so much. It's so encouraging to hear comments from others and to be encouraged when things don't always work out (as they often do). To "a life in stitches", I did have some fit issues. Actually in looking at another review I think the coat should have been a bit looser in fit. But because it seemed to swallow me at the first fit, I decided to size it down a bit in the arms and shoulder area. It just looked better on me that way.

Great result. My version is still a toile/muslin, languishing on the dress form with an excess of fabric in the upper side back...that won't be addressed this side of Christmas (sigh). Really pleased to see you don't appear to have had those kind of fitting problems. Enjoy your lovely bithday coat.

This looks great! The fit is spot on, and the fabric is gorgeous, even if it was a pain to work with!

I say, "Go for it!" Wear your houndstooth dress and coat with a brilliantly coloured belt and shoes--bright red, maybe, or cobalt blue? Love the coat!

Great coat! Worth the effort dealing with fraying fabric.

Very nice. The fraying - did that cause you to resort to chocolate? whiskey? Love the coat. Well done and happy birthday!
