For the second version, I used a corduroy fabric that I have been hanging onto for awhile. I really like the fabric - both the print and the very soft feel of the corduroy - but I was having a hard time knowing what to do with it. This coat pattern seemed like a good match.
I used covered buttons on the front and the sleeve tabs.
The lining is a lighter shade of the pink flowers in the corduroy.
You can see some of the lining fabric used for the under collar to reduce bulk. Ideally, that wouldn't peek out. Oh, well.
Such a great pattern. I'm sure I'll come back to it again sometime.
What? Another coat that fits me but isn't for me?!? Oh, the injustice...
