New Coat

I love how this coat turned out! The superbuzzy fabric makes it fun, especially with the contrasting lining. This was a really easy project that I would recommend, especially with the raglan sleeves. When it's all buttoned up, there's a weird bumpy gap between the collar and the button placket, so I may need to put in a hook and eye. Maybe not though because I doubt that I'll wear it much with the collar all buttoned up. I like how it looks with the collar down.

PS You can see a picture of me wearing the coat here.

I'm about to make this jacket. any tips on where to learn to make lining like that? I don't think the pattern includes lining info. I may just line the arms. Thanks!

Back again. The pattern DOES include lining instructions but the yoke is confusing the crap out of me! Google brought me back to you. I guess I will wing it since PR is not helpful either.
