My inspiration was this Jason Wu coat dress, originally ~3K, on sale now for just $1,048

I used McCalls 5847 to make my version. I've posted a review of the pattern itself in the Pattern Reviews

Instead of the taupe, I used a pale blue silk/cotton oxford shirting from fabricmartfabrics.com  Another obvious change is sleeves, I added elbow length sleeves with a turned cuff and tab. I used black lace from my stash to cover the lapels and cuffs, the original dress has custom appliques. I used black silk for the collar, sleeve tabs, and covered buttons. I planned to insert welt pockets with black silk welts, but.. I ran out of time! I needed to wear the dress!! And it looks just fine without the pockets.
