This is the second coat that I made using McCall 5525 as a basis (my Key Lime Trench was the first). I modified the pattern by making it significantly more fitted, and narrowing the collar and belt somewhat. The material is a black and white cotton sateen, lined with white Bemberg rayon. I added some black bias tape as a trim between the front facing and the lining. More details of this project can be found on my blog
