this coat is so comfy. the idea was for it to be warm and blanket-like. the fabric is heavyish but is very soft like flannel on the inside i think it probably is an upholstery fabric. it is roomy and the shape is a rectangle. it has pockets which are like inseam pockets but uses the jacket front for the pocket piece. a combination of patch and inseam i guess! i left the bottom edge of the jacket raw as i like the frayed edge. i was also going to put big charcoal coloured buttons on the front but chose not to as it looks better undone. the sleeve openings, hood and front facing all have charcoal piping. its a mossy/minty green colour. i used a 1990s pattern. the trickiest part was sewing the front to the back along the shoulder seams because the front and hood were one piece so you have to stitch it at a funny angle.
