Fabric is all from Tomato, in Nippori, Tokyo. Fur and zips are from Okadaya in Tokyo. Buttons are from an old jacket, and happened to match the fabric perfectly.

    Wow! Wonderful additions to a great pattern. I’d love to see how you added the placket. The pockets are great too. I made a Minoru and am always wishing I had added pockets.

    I really like your version! I’m just getting started with mine and I’ve been wanting pockets and yours are great. Your button placket is great too. You’ve really inspired me with this one!

    I also love the front. It looks so well made and I love the plaid lining. Great job!

    Wow, this is such a nice version of the Minoru! It’s amazing to see how you made the design your own with the small changes. I particularly love the button placket and the pockets. I have almost finished mine (I am following the sewalong) but I’m afraid it’s more straight forward, I didn’t feel confident enough to make changes. But for another version, yours is giving me a lot of ideas.
