So Far, so good I hope!
Cording and pockets are done.
I am still not sure about the layer of fiberfill I put between the outside fabric and the green cotton lining. It makes the coat nice and toasty, which is the general idea for a winter coat but I am not a 100% happy with how it looks.
I'll wait with sewing on the sleeves and collar untill I have made up my mind.
Meanwhile we found shoes to go with my son's costume. The are not great but better than his everyday shoes.
