The original pattern is designed to be more roomy, to accommodate winter layers, but since I was making this as a dress coat, I wanted it to be slimmer throughout. So I sized it down and adjusted for length.
I also elongated the collar so that it was a full wrapped collar. It doesn’t break the line of this beautiful double breasted coat, and also makes it warmer. Here you can see the fuchsia lining peaking out. I was originally going to go with a mustard, (because I think that would be AMAZING) but this girly girl loves pink, so I decided to go with pink. At least I don’t have to look at it all the time. Pink is not my color. She loves it all the more for that small touch.
