Well after a 14 month break from making coats, I gave it a go today!
The 1st one took me 3 hours, because I forgot how to make them.
But I got the hang of it after the 1st one. I made 4 all up, here are 2
pics of each coat :)

The white material is silk, and was so hard to sew with!

Aw so cute! I SO agree! I'm new a sewing too and sewed my first silk (by hand) for Shayley's birthday dress....NEVER AGAIN! It is way too messy for me and I'll only try it agian when I actually but a machine! It's so hard! YOU did a great job though compared to mine because the edges are all frizzy on my dress! They are so cute and your little ones are such models!!!

Silk is horrible to work with, I know what you mean by the edges being all frizzy, it kept fraying, I had to be heaps careful not to knock the edges before I got a hemline in!
So you have a pic of the one you made by hand?
