I was talking about the pattern, it's not an easy pattern to understand. It is aimed at people who have sewn with patterns before. I think you could probably figure it out with aid from the pictures but I can't tell you for sure, if you already have the pattern then go for it!

Looks great! I'm actually working on a coat using this pattern right now~ :DD Pretty much the same way you did, except i used the sleeve bands instead. Mine's gonna be dark purple microsuede with silver buttons and zipper piping :3 way too ambitious, but whatever. xD

The sleeves confused me too, but hopefully I will figure it out when it comes time to sew. so far i've only found doing the pockets confusing, heh.

Anyhoo, if you don't mind, one critique I would have is to give it a good steam and iron. Two tools I have found amazingly helpful are what are called Hams.  Tongue There is two kinds, one shaped like a ham (hehe) for curved seams, and another that's like a... sausage (i can't think of another word ._.) that you can use on straight seams and sleeves. They make ironing so much easier.  They're inexpensive too, somewhere between 7-10 dollars.

ultimately I'd like to made a jacket like this with some wool hand woven from ireland....
but for now it looks very intimidating & I feel like I should get back on my machine but it's half past midnite.

amazing color choice

Superb job!!!

I've looooved coats this style and am nervous/excited to tackle this. Wah! The possibilities!

"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect... but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly.... timey-wimey.... stuff."
