Well, here is is, my masterpiece, so far.... :)
|I can wear it with the collar buttoned up or folded down like this. Works either way!|
|Here the coat is matched with a scarf and hat I knitted last winter.|
|Here the coat is buttoned all the way up.|
|Check out the cute strap at the back.|
|Isn't the lining fabric lovely crazy?!|

Here's a detail I added - pockets! The pattern didn't have any pockets, kind of crazy for a coat not to have pockets. But since there were two pleats on each side in the front I added the pockets from Colette patterns Macaron dress, which was a hit! A detail I skipped was the shoulder flaps, it just didn't feel like me and added bulk on the shoulders and too much work.
It was much easier to sew up the coat than I would have thought. I took my time and saw it as a long-term project and I think that helped.
Bye for now,
