I'm sorry to report that sometimes bad things happen to good knitters. The Hideout Coat we made for the front window unfortunately didn't work out as expeceted. The body is WAY too big, there is at least an extra 14" through the waist. The shoulders are also a few inches too wide. The collar looks great, but this coat is made for someone with a broad frame.
so sad, too bad. onward and upward!
