So I started with a super-big men's wool jacket (sorry no pictures of it on me... I mean, me *swimming* in it... I started to tear it apart before I was like, oh yeah!  Pictures!) and somebody's grandma's little ditty for bedtime. 


I knew I wanted some sort of dress coat (New Mexico isn't quite the tropical paradise I was led to believe, lol) so I copied the design off of a overshirt that a friend of mine gave to me.

Sorry for the weird face, my boyfriend was trying to make me laugh (and succeeding!), because he says he's tired of me not smiling for any of my pictures!  (He threatened to get one of those squeaky toys photographers use to make babies smile for their pictures... but I digress.)


A better picture of the shape of the jacket:


And the back (you can kinda, sorta see here that I used the nighty for the coat lining):


And I suppose you could also tie it in the front:


Thanks for looking!  Stay warm!

Yeah, I did use the nighty for the lining.  It's pretty soft (kind of satin-y), and feels really good!
