What are you most proud of? Finishing and fitting! The coat is voluminous with a circle skirt and the smallest size requires5 yds of fabric, plus lining and interlining. After determining where I needed to remove fabric from bodice, I pared down skirt panels as the large circle skirt overwhelmed my frame. I made bound buttonholes, designed my own collar to flip up and designed my own cuffs. Gertie adds posts with help on steps, but her schedule got way behind and I moved ahead and made it on my own because I want it finished for an upcoming trip.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Join the Flickr group, be prepared to make several muslins and the coat does take a lot of time. But I am very pleased with my end result.

Effie watched your progress on Flickr and what a great outcome. Hope you have a great weekend in your beautiful new coat.
