Here are the final pics:
|Yeah! It's all done!|
|Side view - still yeah! It's all done!!|
|Front - with all of the embellished circles, buttons, collar, etc.|
|Close-up of the collar|
|Closer close-up of the collar|
|Back of the collar. The collar is meant to be shorter than the collar stand - that's why you can see the collar stand peeking out underneath.|
|Back view. It reminds me of a butterfly. Maybe I'll call this my Butterfly Coat?|
|Close-up of one embellished circle. The couched yarn will continue to get fluffier |
with each wear as the fibers work themselves loose from the zig zag stitches.
|The sleeve hem needed a little extra love so I added some of the yarn here too.|

Here's the total yardage breakdown for this project:
Tweed overlay - 3 yards
Green base wool - 3 yards
Purple wool for sleeves - 1 yard
Tie dye lining - 2 yards
Off white lining - 1.5 yards
Grand total = 10.5 yards in this coat alone!!
I have no idea how many yards of the yarn I used for the embellishment or how many bobbins I filled to do the couching.
This brings my stash bustin' total to 39.5 yards so far since July. This coat has made quite a dent but I still have a long way to go. I am very happy this project is finally done. Now it's onto a few easy projects before the next big one.
