DIY Perfect print coat

I’m generally not a fan of printed coats, but I recently started watching the new reality show House of DVF and found myself mesmerized by all the color and prints.  So when I found this DVF print on moodfabrics.com which was a dead ringer for one I spotted on the show, I had to get it.

The pattern used for this coat was my beloved Vogue V8840 shirt pattern which has appeared in my last three fashion posts here here and here with the following pattern alterations:

-Added 14″ to the length
-Added 1″ to the back shoulders
-Added 1″ to the height of the neck
-Added 1″ to the left and right side seams
-Added a 5″x41″ front facing
-Added 3″ to the length of the sleeves
-Added a 2″x18″ leather band at sleeve
-Added 2 1.5″ snap buttons

I chose to simply serge the edges instead of lining, but I’m considering adding a removable lining.
