Above: Progress of boiled wool coat for my final collection.
The coat is almost finished (still needs buttons and top-stitching/facing finishing). The panels are all hexagons, with welt pockets in the side panels (along with flaps). Large brown buttons will be added down the centre front in order to finish it off. The seams are all on the outside, as a design feature (as they do not fray). This adds structure to the coat.
