Fabulous coat! Great job!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.

A couple questions (because I love it so!)  You say you added pockets.  Would you be able to give any details on that, just really basic ones like where & how big?  Pockets are a must have on any coat I own!

And also, what did you think of the sizing?  On the pattern envelope the picture shows it as kind of... large, but yours fits wayy nicer!  Did you size down from your actual measurements when you made it, or end up having to take anything in?

Thanks a ton if you can answer any of that  Cheesy  You rock!

thank you, everybody!  Smiley

knittheory: i made it the smallest size. it was a little snug so i fixed that by adding triangles to the arm pits. that's a whole other story.. haha i'd say go bigger because you can always take it in! for the pockets i added them on the side seams. i traced pockets from a pair of sweat pants. maybe this will help? haha if not don't be afraid to ask more questions!

This coat is so adorable I want to make one for my daughter. But I want to ask you did the pattern come with the hood or did you add that yourself?

Thanks!
