The pattern is Butterick 5569.
The collar. I took 2 inches off the width. It would have been far too wide and flapping around all over the place. I also rounded off the corners.
Pockets. The pockets in the pattern are stitched into the side seams. Instant hip-enhancement. Bleh. I swapped these for some square pockets on the front of the coat.
I used some vintage buttons I've had for, you know, ever, to match the lining.
I used lining on the underside of the collar to make it sit flat.

Am I pleased with myself?
Do I think I look awesome?
Topped my look off with this fabulous bag I received as an early birthday present from my cousin.
Probably would have been less pleased if I'd known my hair resembled a mad dandelion all day.
