Can you see the insets on the front? That's the one I could not fit on my red silk noil version. Since I love this coat so much, I am going to make another one, in red again, with the same lining. I already have a beautiful red wool fabric, enough length. I think I would like pockets along the inset seams.
I love this book. Ms. Kaneko's garments in this book have just the right amount of retro feel. I hope to sew the black retro jacket and the white jacket below.
