Description

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

Material Notes

Boiled wool camry (a wool blend); Kasha lining; flannel underlining; grosgrain ribbon for hem facing.
