Grey coat - finished

Hi everyone,
Still massively busy and stressed out here but I have at least managed to fit in a bit of sewing.  I finished the grey coat - unfortunately far to late to be able to wear it this year.  Oh well, it'll just have to hang in the wardrobe until next May, unless someone whisks me off to a northern hemisphere holiday soon (hint hint).

Anyway, here it is...
I can't remember where I left you on this project but here is the bodice
The skirt with floating patch pockets...

 Bound seams on the inside of the skirt...
Super cute lining...
And a front and back view...Sorry, the sunlight is so harsh these pictures are a bit washed out.
 Sadly it is a little snug.  Those few kilos I have always battled have become a few more lately grrr.  I just don't have the energy to deal with it right now.

I'll do a proper review in the next couple of days.

In other news, I start another class tomorrow night.  It is with the same teacher as the corset class (yes, I will do a wrap up of that soon) but this time I will be learning about lingerie.

Cute! Haha I also like the separate bodice & skirt in themselves, you know me and my penchant for not-quite-finished things ;)

Your coat looks terrific! And won't it be great to have a new coat when your weather turns cool again?

Love the coat. I had the same issue with a jacket this year, so I let out the vent. I don't know when I'll shift the weight and I can still wear my jacket comfortably.

the floating pockets are very cute. I wish I had some sewing skills. I envy you
