Seriously!? Do you know that you made my day by saying that. But yeah, that pattern is great. I made a coat out of velvet a few years back out of the one with the split tailed back. I've also had fun modifying that pattern by using the shorter part for the one with peplum (without the peplum) and the tails. It makes nifty looking tail coats that are cool for steampunk too.
