The Finished Coat!
It's done! The much labored-over coat.
I find there's really not a whole lot to say. After all, I said A LOT during the process - ten videos worth!
I love the coat. I really do. I'm so proud of my construction on this project. I do still wonder if I got the fit exactly right. And in retrospect, I really should have converted the one-piece sleeve to a two-piece tailored sleeve to avoid the bagginess I've got going on.
But you know what? I'm not going to nitpick. It's a beautiful coat, it's warm, and I made it all my own little self. Now please allow me to indulge in way too many photos.
Hooray for me! And hooray for you - for all your tips and encouragement along the way. I've had a handful of you write to me and say you've been inspired to start your own coat. And that makes me very, very happy.
