This coat is almost self drafted. I used a completely different coat pattern and re-drafted it several times (first into a shoulder princess seamed pattern and later into an “S” shaped seams pattern) to get this look.
The coat incorporates bound buttonholes and piped seams.
I love the combination of the lime green wool and olive piping and buttons.
You can find detailed instructions on the drafting process on my blog.
