Thank you all for all your nice comments. I am glad you like this jacket/coat. @NellyJane - regarding fabric - it is expensive however I was lucky to buy 2 rest pieces (0,80 cm and 0,70 cm) just enough for my jacket. I had to make different collar as I did not have enough fabric for all parts. The fabric for collar and caffs I have bought as well as rest. All fabrics together costs me about EUR 80,00. Wool/cashmere costs normally about EUR 150,00 per meter - so I was lucky. @CathieBeadsWNC - well, making lining is not so difficult. I have adjusted the part which suppous to be reversible and add pocket. I had some doubts but in the end everything went well together.
