InstructionsI embellished with round buttonholes, I got those instructions from Sandra Betzina's new book on sewing tips.
I used Perl cotton embroidery thread to embellish with top stitching. Although the fabric is busy, it adds just a touch of couture to the coat.

What was your inspiration?
The Fabric! I've been sewing a lot of coats/jackets lately - mostly solids, I saw this at Mood and just had to get it. With solid pants and shirt, this will be the focal point of my outfit.
What are you most proud of?
The top stitching and buttonholes. Also, I'm finding that I'm simply getting better at sewing something that looks professional.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take it slow,
