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.

Wowee Thank you ladies. I am glad to have been of help. I have already worn the coat and literally been stopped by people wanting to know where I got it!

Gorgeous jacket. Even though it gave you grief, the result is so lovely!

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!

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.

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.

Valerie Your fabric make the coat unique !!! I've had this pattern in my stash for many years but I am still looking for the fabric. Your review is very helpful.

What a fabulous jacket! I love the fabric combination you used. Very high-end boutique looking coat!

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.
