New Look 6788

I made View D the coat. It's unlined with simple lines. Details on the neck edge has band facings that are top-stitched with one large button for closure. I used a gabardine fabric that came from my stash. I did not like how the pockets came out. I ususally have no issues with pockets placed like these as they're just simple patch pockets, but I think the side seams are too angled out from the line of the placement (if that makes sense). I will wear this over a simple sleeveless dress or with a top & slacks during the early fall when the temperatures begin to drop. And later probably make the shorter jacket version that has the flap details on the outside for its pocket.

Your coat looks great--very professional looking! I can't wait to see what you will wear it with.
