I am going to make a coat for myself. However, not as complex as the coats they made. Since my winter coat has been taking care of me for 29 years, and I think there are 29 years more left in it, I thought I would try to make a similar coat. Yes, you read correctly. My trusty winter coat has been my companion since high school.

I found Vogue 8842. It is actually for more of a rain coat. It can be made with or without a hood.
I know, quite a departure for me, not following the pattern exactly. However, I read two reviews of this coat, both were favorable. The one did some tweaking, a lot more than I want to do and ended up with a beautiful coat. See cameraman-jacket . Since I have my old friend as inspiration and a model, I think I will be able to do it.
I ordered some closeout fabric and lining from fabric.com at a great price. When I go to Joann's this week, I'll see if I can find the 30" separating zipper necessary.
