I made a great winter coat the year I graduated (ie, the year Charles & Di got married  :o )

I wore it for about 10 years until it got too threadbare but I still have the pattern and intend to make it again when I retire (the sooner the better!!!).  Interestingly, the winter after I made it my granddad gave my brother an old overcoat from the 50's that had had almost no wear and, apart from welt pockets rather than patch pockets, the styling was identical.

I expect it will need a wee FBA, which, if I allow it to drop to the hem, will also incorporate a FHA but I'll check before I cut.  It's this one, by the way.
