Purple Buttons

I made this coat in autumn after I saw a very similar coat from Vogue patterns. As I did not know how to get the original pattern at that time, I draw the pattern myself. I think I still need some exercise in drawing stand-up collars, as it did not come out quit the same I wanted. But never mind, it was a great experience, and there are at least the sleek sleeves, which I like very much. I made the piping by myself, after the instructions of the How-To on this site, and it worked very well!
I lined the whole coat with a purple-pink lining fabric, which I forgot to make a photo of. I also like the big purple buttons very much.
