This coat is absolutely gorgeous! Well worth the frustration entailed. You should've taken more pictures of yourself wearing it, you deserve to show it off!

Thank you so much for the great review! Your coat is gorgeous! I also cut my fabric for the same pattern a few years ago and have moved it into the must finish pile so I will be thinking of your review when I get to it.

Wow! Great job on finishing it! I'm so impressed you stuck it through. You have a gorgeous coat now! I was on the edge of my chair reading your review wondering about the buttons ;-) so funny.

So glad you finally got to finish this--it is gorgeous! The color and the unusual design were worth the hassle.

If you aren't sure you made an amazing coat in a drop dead colour step outside with it on and watch the traffic stop and heads turn - this is to die for so it was time well spent after all ? Love it but not sure I will be the girl in cream with this pattern

I am so glad you persevered. I remember your 1st despairing review-it was timely because I too had the pattern. V8550 sums up all I love and hate about Vogue, great design but what a struggle when their idea of ease and fit doesn't match mine.
