Grainline Cascade Duffle Coat: finished!

Not much left to say here except I LOVE IT! This is the kind of project that you'll be so proud to have made. Although it was time-consuming and involved many pieces and steps, there's nothing too difficult really. And the result? So worth it.

Pattern: Grainline Cascade Duffle Coat, View A with hood.
Fabrics: Japanese wool blend, 'Cecil' (2 metres) and Liberty Tana Lawn 'Oxford'. (1.55m... just!)
Interfacing: lightweight cotton woven.
Size: 12 graded to 14 at hips.
Alterations: Sleeves shortened just a tad. Pockets shortened by about 4cm. When I came to attach my zip, the pull was on the opposite side to that stated in the pattern, but it all worked out fine.
