I just started sewing three months ago and made this jacket. This was one of my first big projects.

The directions were awesome in showing me what needed to be done and how to do it. Every step I went along the way I tried my coat on and made sure it fit correctly.

I had to make the arms in my coat 1 1/2" longer than the pattern put in.

I made my coat out of italian coating wool. It was very easy to work with, minimal stretching and shedding.

This pattern was a great experience to work on. I will have to try making the short coat.

Very impressive for a 'beginner' (I don't think you can call yourself that any more!). Look forward to seeing what you make next.

Very impressive for an early project. Sewn buttons and buttonholes also. I was very happy to read your post. Good luck on the next project and I look forward to reading more reviews from you.
