Teal Wool Coat

I have been working on this simple coat very slowly over the last few weeks.
It still needs hemming and a good press but is otherwise complete. I've added a lining in a dark teal satin, and pockets, belt and facing/collar in the slightly lighter teal wool. I think it works quite well.
I should be able to get this fully finished by 26th December for it to be the SWAP early garment (One garment may be started on 29 October 2018 and completed prior to 26 December 2018)

------------
The pattern was from the UK women's magazine Prima, which includes a free sewing pattern for subscribers. This was the one from Feb 2015.
Patterns are available on ebay in the UK. But you can see its quite a simple pattern. I made mine 4 inches longer than the knee length version.

I love it! The two shades of teal are a great idea. What is the pattern that you used?

Lovely use of colors! would love to own something like this, even though I'd get to wear it once a year. Thanks for the inspiration.
