Buffalo check is the new black.  I hate following trends but sometimes we do it and don't realize it.  It just permeates.  On my mission to make all built by Wendy patterns and fashion a new wardrobe;  I finished this today from Simplicity 3964.  Some of the pattern directions were real screwy, and I had to take it in a lot.  I love it just the same.

Looks like you had MUCH better luck with that pattern than I did. Mine was so wonky as to be unfixable. Is the fabric a flannel with a little weight? I used 100% cotton and think perhaps it didn't have the weight to lay correctly.

Actually it's wool. However I "lined" the inside with black cotton.  I thought using the same wool for the facing would be too bulky.  Also, many of the parts it said to do by machine I did by hand, like the "top stitching" where you sew the front to the facing.  I knew that would turn out terrible so I just did regular top stitching, and sewing the facing in by hand.  Hence why I said the pattern was a bit wacky.  I did my own thing and read the directions later and think I had better luck because of it. I could see how a really light weight fabric would make it more difficult!  I will make it again in different lengths in different fabrics.  Glad you like it!
