I wanted a more subtle coat after making the trench coat and I’ve admired this style for a while without selecting fabric for it. The pattern sizes began too large for me so I added a curved shoulder dart after all was said and done. I would have preferred not to dart but I only realised after it was finished. Also added pockets, no coat is complete without them.
