The most luxurious coat ever! :) used cashmere for the shell and silk as lining. I used a classic coat pattern and made up most of the variations. The cashmere was on sale — and it was all interfaced, so it was quite thick at some point. But I like the end result a lot!
The feature i love the most is the flap in the back with button located in the pleat. :) I also made sure to line up the pocket seam with the upper body seam, though that was a pain to sew through!
the only defect is that i have a big butt, in my vision, the butt pleat is not opened like that. oh wells….
cashmere (45 dollar)
buttoms from ebay (5)
