    This is so gorgeous! I’m dying to get started on a bright colored jacket/coat for late summer or early fall! I love this, thanks for the inspiration.

      I bought it at Fabricana – my local fabric store. They don’t have an online shop sadly! It was a lucky find in their clearance section.

    Extremely beautiful coat, great colour, very flattering and glamorous. I must make one! In dark purple probably. Thats the great thing about sewing, you can make it in any colour you like! Well done, very professional.

    deliciously wonderful ! The colour is beautiful and the collar on the coat knocks any socks off!

    I love those wide lapel jackets. I can’t wait to be able to sew and whip up a beauty like this without batting an eye. Really lovely.

    Ooooh, pretty! That is one of the best colors the world has to offer. I really like the flare around the waist, it makes tiny waists like yours look even tinier. =)

    may God bless you, M

      Thanks! I did find it fairly easy to sew, I’ve been sewing for a long time though.
      The pattern is rated ‘Advanced’ but the instructions are well written and very clear. If you run into any troubles, feel free to leave me a comment on my blog or send me an email and I’ll try to help you out. I’ve also heard that there are lots of tips on the Colette Patterns flickr group, too. Good luck!
