One project at my patternmaking course at university was to construct a costumized coat for ourselves. as the discussed topic was sleeve attachments it was a must-have in the construction. i decided to do a raglan attachment and as im not the casual one it had to be slightly spectacular  Grin
the coat consists of an upper part that is gathered at the bottom edge, an included belt and a wide assymmetric bottom. as already said it has raglan sleeves with inserted shoulder scales. i did a small stand-up collar, maybe i will change that one day to a high stand-up or something else. closure is a concealed button panel and press buttons at the collar and the belt.
the sleeves have wide cuffs that are winged to the outside. you can also find this wing shape at the flap of the piped pockets, the trenchcoat inspired flap at the back and the assymmetric front.
the shell fabric is a black wool fabric, maybe its felt, im not sure. for lining i used purple polyester taffeta

I love asymmetric clothes, it looks great. The purple is ice and I also really like those shoulder additions.
