Wow! So much work but you look great in this unique coat! I am currently working on a jacket that does not have instructions for a lining, so I am using an underlining technique new to me. I did make a muslin, which I admit I don't usually do, but it's still a lot of extra work I didn't count on. You did great on this.

All your sewing, removing stitches and restitching paid off in a big way. Very informational review.

Fabulous! You didn't make the pattern seem like a nightmare but adequately voiced your concerns about it - excellent job! It's a ton of work, and I'm sure you are ready to move on to something else. = ) This is really great, and I appreciate all of your info as I have this pattern in my stash.

What a beautiful jacket you've created. Soon you'll forget about how much work you put into making it and just enjoy wearing it.

That is one knockout coat! I was going to compliment you on your mix of fabrics, but I guess I will say how impressed I am with the way you handled that unusual print to make it look really incredible. Awesome!

Very pretty jacket! I'm glad you could make it work despite the fitting problems. That is amazing fabric and I love how you've matched it across the zip.
