He was so sad, I promised him a new one. I may have forgotten about it, but he never did! So here's the new one.
Last time, I used a twill, but for this coat I used some nice cotton gabardine. It has a slight sheen to it, and is a much better quality (and yet cost less).
I love all the details on this coat and, this being the third time I've made it, they went more quickly.
Do you recognize these buttons? Alex fell in love with the buttons I used on my blue jacket, and luckily I had enough left over.
The lining and shell are hemmed separately, which is much speedier than bagging the hem and squeezing the coat through a hole in the sleeve.
