 -Okay, I know, Tommy Hilfiger... but I LOVE this jacket. LOVE.
I have been eyeing coats in this style for awhile, I have seen people at school wearing the style like this. and I've really liked it for a long time. This is the first coat I've actually found at a store (actually, I saw it in a magazine and looked it up on their site *n_n)
This is the only picture I could find online of it, I know it's not very good. I also have a better picture in the magazine with no person in it >_<;; So I could scan it into the computor if it would help?

Ugh, pink.. nothing against pink of course, but I just don't think I could EVER wear a big.. pink.. coat.
I have a basic coat pattern. It has the shaped sides like this windbreaker does. What it doesn't have is the smocked bottom and cuffs. (or ribbing there, you could put that instead of smocked)
& it doesn't have a hood, pockets. It has a normal collar. (which this coat doesn't have a collar at all!)
And it doesn't have a zipper under the buttons. I have no idea how to do this! I've tried to think of ways, but nothing I can think of will work properly @_@
I have wool fabric, because I was originally going to make a warm coat to wear in winter, and I think I will stick to it because I don't want to go and buy more fabric O_O;;
   -> Would wool work for this type of coat?

Also, I don't exactly know how to do smocking, so if anybody has links to tutorials, or tips & tricks, thanks!
 & Would wool work for smocking, too?

Okay, I have lots of questions >_<;;
Thanks any help!!

elastic smocking... it's a start

Also: I don't think wool would lay quite the way you would want this to.

hm...that kind of just looks like the use of elastic thread...not really real smocking.
there was a book at my library about smocking...like how to thread it (by hand..) to get a specific desired effect of smocking....
but if you're looking for smocking with design...your local library is a decent bet.

the "smocking" look on this jacket looks like it is really thick elastic threaded through the waist cuff and then rows sewn on top ...giving a rooshed effect which will expand when pulled.

Great looking jacket BTW Smiley
