So, further to this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430632.0#axzz2scefS5lu

I made a frock coat for my daughter for a cosplay thing she's doing. I'm not even really clear what it is. I don't think I even care to ask - I just was pleased to make the coat.

I DID use a pattern - the Simplicity 4923 version, as I found upon further research that the 18th century pattern I had used originally was the father of the Simplicity pattern. Why create more problems that I had to?

So here we go:

The back of the coat. the sleeves and the hood are grommeted and laced on, the buckles on the back are purely decorative. The ones on the sleeves and pockets and front are functional.



the Daughter in her happy coat Cheesy




Better shot of the pockets. She hasn't taken it off since she put it on.

Are those pockets on the sleeves as well?!

It's great! Love all the hardware. And I like the colours - nice to see a change from the usual steampunk brown-and-copper! Not that I don't love brown and copper, but that forest green is lovely. Well done. Smiley

thank you Cheesy  I had to physically remove it from her so she didn't wear it out in the last snowfall (it's not lined or waterproofed)

Looks great! Love all the hardware. I don't blame your daughter for not wanting to take it off.
