What are you most proud of? I made this one in 8 days and was alot more confident on how to proceed - I didn't procrastinate at any stage I just made it. This course has been invaluable to me in enabling me to complete these long planned projects - now I can try out the course pattern as I am keen to try out some of the pattern changing skills taught.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Following Kennith's instructions - particularly in regards to pressing techniques will get you a much more proffessional looking result. The chinese silk charmeuse was not as easy to work with as the italian and I did not feel the finish was as proffessional. I guess quality always shows. I am afraid I am developing a taste for increasingly expensive fabric.

I really like the shape you gave this coat, that's what I'm going to attempt as well.

You did a stellar job on your coat! It looks amazing on you!

Beautiful coat. I've read that boucle should be reinforced/stabilized with fusible interfacing due to the loose weave. Did you stabilize your boucle? Also did the fabric easily ravel?
