Susanna's Coat

Ah, the joys of forced project finishing!  I need this sort of pressure more often.  Hehe.

So today I worked on finishing my sister Susanna's coat.  We began work on this coat last fall--Susanna designed it, and we used a vintage McCall's coat pattern as our base for the draft, modifying as we went along.  I am happy to say that it is almost finished, with the exception of being hemmed!  

The coat has a very "swingy" feel to it.  She wanted it very simple and sophisticated.  

Here are some pics.  I have not steamed or pressed anything yet. :)

Susanna decided that she did not want any buttons. :)  

Once it is finished I'll try and get some photos of Susanna actually wearing it!

Have a lovely day,
