Coat Sew Along - Done!

Yea, yea, I know I'm not looking too hot. Colds will do that to a person.



Flasher! I love this lining.






All buttoned up.


I'm proud of the back because that is where I always have fitting issues.


I inside button. I think the little buttonhole looks funny on the lapel but whatever. I am pleased with the coat overall.

Here is the review on PatternReview.com.
