    I love this please tell me the pattern you used if any,and if not please post the pattern and how to do.I am a big lady and find it difficult to find just the right coat and I think I just found it.

      Yes which would be easier for you. If you like I could find a basic pattern for you to work from and tell you the dimension and instruction to alter the pattern or I can send you my pattern with instructions
