Hello everybody, this is my first coat I ever made, it is made this year somewhere in January, it took me a while to finish, due all kind of First Times: a coat, lining a coat, the closing with the hide button closure.
After I had a long night headache with understanding the closure instructions…but i did understand them :), I found this tutorial https://mezzocouture.wordpress.com/2010/10/24/hidden-button-closures-are-difficult/#comment-938 , It was much better to find it before making the closure but maybe someone will find this also useful.
The coat has a kind of tie thing behind that looks on the front side as 2 pockets . I had to omit that as I find it to heavy in the fabric I used, but without that the gathers can be better seen on the back.
Thank you for reading, xx
