Thanks you for the compliments!  Cheesy  I got to test drive it today because I finally got snow, and it is sooo warm.  Success!

Wow! You pulled out all the stops! Very smart and so many details, even ones we can't see like the interlinings!
Ah, yes, Plaiditudes. I have the same beef with them and their predecessor (British Frenzy): Skewwwy! You did an amazing job with yours.
Congrats on being featured! You deserve it!

Wow! This looks so amazing and professional! I do not see the mistakes you spoke of like the "twisting." Alright, I'm a newbie, and I have a question: what is "weft" interlining? And kudos for working with a fabric that has to be matched by the pattern. That combined with such heavy fabric (I'm too chicken for that), thick layers (also too chicken), and complicated additions (I'm scared of welt pockets) makes it all the more impressive!

Weft interlining is basically a type of knit interlining.  I love using it on pretty much any project because it gives fabric a nice soft drape without being too stiff.  Specifically for this coat, I chose it because weft interlining is quite soft, it's brushed, and very porous.  More soft brushy porous areas means more air pockets in the fabric.  More air pockets means more warmth!  Smiley  I think.  I hope.  Haha!
