The original pattern from 1958.
I loved the shape of the shorter coat but wanted to add more details and adjusted the pattern to make beige cuffs on the sleeves and a thicker border on the bottom of the coat. I'm very pleased with the result!
I used hot pink twill under the collar as well as for the lining of the pockets and the belt. I was debating the colour of the lining but went with a navy blue which turned out really well. My first option of light blue would have been too busy.
