This is a variation of the Ninot jacket pattern. I just lengthened the side seams to make it into a swing coat, so easy!
The coat is collarless, it has handmade buttonholes, welt pockets, a deep inverted pleat in the back and jewel buttons.
I used a bright blue textured cotton piqu and lined it with an apple green lining fabric.
You can see the whole project on my blog.
