I’ve just finished the Abbey coat from independent pattern designer Jamie Christina. I can’t recommend the pattern highly enough, it’s excellent, and I’m so pleased with the flattering fit. I used a thick wool for the main coat fabric and a lovely teal polka dot lining for the inside. I made bound buttonholes for the first time ever, which I’m SO proud of! I love the result and can’t wait to wear it this autumn. More construction details and photos on my blog
