Purple coat

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Vogue V8548 Link to website or photo voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8548-products-9222.php?page_id=285 What are you most proud of? Because I was using upholstery fabric, I didn't want a double layer on the front and back like the pattern called for - so I faced the coat instead, including the skirt. Added a pocket using instructions from : Cool Couture by Kenneth King. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a coat for beginners - follow the instructions, don't improvise unless you are very comfortable.
