I loveeeee them! Its awesome that you made your own pattern but then it means I have to wait for a tute before I can attempt to make one!!


I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.

Oh wow.  I was thinking just yesterday that I should try to make a coat like that.  You did a wonderful job.  Now I really want one.

Omigosh! Okay, whoa, lots of comments!

Thanks everyone!

I'm not going to promise anythingggg but I MIGHT pick up some fabric this week/weekend and I'll try to put something together.. it may take a while though as I'm a little bogged down with school work at the moment. 

However, out of curiousity, do people want a tutorial showing how to draft the pattern from square one?  I generally use an old bodice block-thing that I made a few years ago, but there seem to be a lot of tutorials floating around the internet on how to use your own measurements to make one.  Would it help if I pointed out a few of these and then just showed how to turn it into a princess seamed coat pattern?  Or do you want instructions for putting the entire thing together?

If people could put rainbows in zoos they'd do it.

I'd love a tute too. I'd be happy with links pointing me to the basic bit and then you elborating from there on. Looks really edgy.

They look like they'd be really good for when you want something warm, but you don't want to go for the whole overcoat thing. At least with a jacket, it's easier to put on and take off when going into and out of overheated shops.
I'm going to jump on the 'tute!' wagon here - I'm moving to England very soon (three weeks! yay!), and I'm on the lookout for cute but functional warm things. =)

I just can't explain how much I love your two jackets! They look sooo great and comfortable. I've been wondering if I should buy a jacket like those and now I see how beautiful you made them by yourself Smiley

I'm completely in love with your jackets. I wish I'd seen this sooner. Or rather, that you'd made them sooner. Then I could have made an awesome jacket BEFORE winter struck. What a great job. And aren't princess seams fun?
