Thank you all for the wonderful compliments!  I'm so flattered!

KittyKurl:  I thought about including a picture of the inside but couldn't get one worth showing.  The lining is just plain old lining fabric in a brown that pretty much matches the fur trim.  It's matte, not satiny, and I think it's polyester.  If you're interested, the thermal stuff was called "thermolam" something or other and was found near the interfacing at the fabric store.  I basted it to the lining pieces before assembling.

iampoison:  I don't read manga so I haven't seen this jacket you speak of, but I think it would be cute with white fur instead of brown.

To anyone who wants to make one of their own:  I think the pattern was pretty simple and didn't take all that much time.  Probably most of my time was spent fiddling with the little details I added.  I'd love to see what you guys come up with.

I want that INCREDIBLY bad.

It's beautiful.

I've got a gun in my hand, but that gun won't cock
My finger's on the trigger, but that trigger seems locked
And I can't stop staring at the tick tock clock
And even if I could, I would never give up

That's amazing! I wish I could follow clothing patterns - it's kinda empowering not having to settle for what the shops have available but to make your own and have it look that good.

That is awesome!  I love coats, especially those you make.  I just don't have the skills for it.  I'm a pretty shoddy seamstress.
