    I haven’t logged on for a while, so I wondered what everyone have been up to. Look at this coat! Masterpiece! Absolutely 5*!

    Love your choice of fabric and colour. It turned out so well. I have just posted the same coat but mine looks very different. The coat finishing tells me that you are a very experienced sewer. Great job.

    A very very well done coat! Extra Extra points for the boutonniere. I was just wondering did you have any problems with the height of the funnel neck, as others trying this pattern have stated?

      I did shave some of the acute curve off the funnel neck as I was concerned it might look a bit ‘space age’.
