I (mostly) finished my Lady Grey coat just in time for Christmas. Aside from fitting tweaks, my biggest change was to the roll line of the pattern; I made the lapel break higher so that I had room for a higher button.
Loads of details on the fitting and construction are available on my blog
Boiled wool camry (a wool blend); Kasha lining; flannel underlining; grosgrain ribbon for hem facing.
