Made this with a new Colette pattern http://www.colettepatterns.com/shop Sencha.... It turned out okay but I think it would be better if it was made with silky material....  but regardless for a first try I thought it turned out pretty well. Just wish it was longer... The way you put it on is from the buttons from the back... thats what sold me... so vintage! LOVES IT! Can't wait to make the dresses from Colette... Lovely!
Tell me what you think! (Dont mind my messy hair... its POURING here in So. cali... )

Very pretty!  I think you could go with something similar but more fitted in the waist and bust, which would be even more vintage.  You have such a great vintage look!

That's cute!  It's very Mad Men-esque.  I love the outfit you put together with it, too.

Maaaan!  Not only does this look amazing, you've reminded me of the existance of Collette patterns.  I think I need their Lady Grey coat http://www.colettepatterns.com/shop/lady-grey for spring.   Kiss
