After recently watching the Lemony Snicket Movie and being amazed by Violette's coat...

http://www.costumersguide.com/violet/a6.jpg

a wonderful blue/gray affair...

and seeing a pattern such as the one below...

http://www.fitzpatterns.com/Pages/MIMI/0505_Mimi_PatternPage.htm

and thinking... perhaps, if I made the sleeves long and slightly billow-y and extended the length of the dress and changed the front a bit...

have decided, whenever the pattern shows up, that I'd love to make a Violette-esque fall/spring coat.

anyone interested in... sewing along?

I think the blue/gray coat would be great for fall/spring in a wooly material...

I don't think the pattern would work, so I think I'll just try to draft it out myself.

*gulp*

Is there a more experienced sewer who'd be willing to mentor this project?

Not insulting anybodies sewing skills or anything, but in my experience, it's nice to have someone who will answer your questions...

Anyone got any really good pics for this coat, or links to some? I REALLY want to do this coat pattern (or a version of it, gotta be a bit careful re copyright!) for my new pattern business, so I need to see the darn thing properly!
