I made this for my mother a few years ago, but the only photo I have is from before I put all the buttons on. The fabric is a beautiful wool, and the lining is a very pretty blue. The buttons are mother of pearl. I had never made a proper jacket before, so it was fun! Although I think I should have used slightly stiffer interfacing, as the fabric was quite soft. I made it when the Steffi pattern was still free.
