Here is my finished Uptown coat! The original pattern calls for a double breasted coat, but I wanted to use these ceramic buttons that a friend of ours made. Of course I didn't want to put them to the wear and tear that every day buttons get, so I put in large snaps on the inside of the coat as the official closers.
No word yet on why my hair is veering into Prince territory. I don't remember leaving home with a poofy faux-mullet but who knows.
