This is an amazing coat, and very flattering on you. The fit is excellent on the shoulders & bodice, nice job on the alterations.

Great coat. Hand tailoring takes a long time but is well worth it and the benefits can be seen in your coat. Good job.

Your 52 hours resulted in a wonderful and perfect fit coat. I love the colour. Didn't notice anything about your buttonholes until you brought it up - doubt anyone will. Congratulations on your staying wiht it (I doubt I could hve) and on this beautiful coat

So pretty, love the color and fabric. Great review, you clearly put a lot of time into the fit and construction of your coat, and it fits you very well. Nice work!

This looks like a beautifully made and well-fitted coat. Congratulations on all your hard work! Enjoy it. For a long time - I still have the hand-tailored CK coat I made 40 years ago.

It's lovely - the waist band in particular is very flattering. I admire all the work you put into tailoring this garment. A coat to treasure!

Oh, wanted to add a note of thanks for the warning on the horizontal buttonholes. I probably would've done the same thing!!!

Beautiful - I'd like to make a coat & had narrowed down to this and a couple of other patterns. I love the simplicity of your design, without all the embelleshmints and will likely now use this pattern. Very nice job!

I have been watching you work on this, following your blog. The coat turned out to be VERY nice. The color is quite flattering on you. Super job!
