    It’s soooooooo pretteeeeeeeeeee! I love the piping, and the sleeve detail. Can’t wait to see members versions… I’m surprised about the size range, a bigger gal would totally rock this! I hope sewers bigger than a 40 will use the how-to on grading patterns up.

    very very pretty, i would wear it as a coat, not a dress, it would feel a little to heavy or too elaborated (im having trouble finding the right word :P).

    Oh! how elegant. I don’t usually buy the patterns for sale (I know, I’m cheap :D) But I think I’ve got to have this one, this is great. As kicchan said, it does have a bit of a trench coat feel (I love it!), and with a little sleeve lengthening, would make a gorgeous dress coat.

    Pretty :) Reminds me of a slimmer trench coat. Don’t know how well it’d look on my bodytype, but it’s pretty none the less. Lovely colors.

    You are quite fond of using this green house for photo shooting, huh? Gives a bit of spring feeling and all. ;)
