I just saw this today, and am in AWE. I've never tackled a coat, so I can't imagine making one this involved. What an accomplishment; it looks a million on you! Congrats!

I love it and I love that you tailored a gorgeous coat after having had previous issues with tailoring. I would suggest a button on the ven, but I know you don't have any extra buttons. What about topsitching it down further? Anyway, you will be warm and toasty in this miserable winter.
