The original pattern is for a house coat and didn't call for lining or interfacing, i.e. I had to draft those pattern pieces myself. I also aded fusible interlining and chose larger buttons. I used a dusty pink wool with a bright fuchsia lining and vintage plastic buttons. All in all, it was a pretty easy coat to make, especially since it's a raglan sleeve coat (no sleeves to ease in) without a collar. My only problem is that the weather here in Toronto is way to warm! I can't believe I'm saying this but if it was only 4-5 degrees cooler this coat would do the trick!
