Finally finished this coat. It went from white to cotton candy blue to spruce green. I freakin love it. And the inside is the best part!
I had some major issues with the collar. I did it like the directions said, but it ended up looking like a really sad flappy piece. So I ripped it out and pieced together a rounded collar with the few pieces of fabric I had left.
Left off one set of tabs on the shoulder, and had to take in the arms. I really didn’t want this to look like “Dad’s Coat”.
Dyed wool, polyester lining, enormous buttons!!
