Mc Call’s M6517 view D was what I used for this corduroy coat. I really wanted to use wool but didn’t have the funding for the pricey stuff so I found this corduroy. I added the buttons and button holes to this version even though the pattern didn’t call for it. Plus, I took off the pockets. They were distracting, large, and could fit a baby kangaroo in it so off they came.
It took me a couple of nights after work to finish this so it’s pretty easy and the instructions were easy.
I’m planning a remake of this coat in navy, red, olive green….
