I hope you get lots of years of enjoyment out of this coat!
My main issues with this collared version is "devising" a collar that should have been a hood in it's place! I think I frogged that collar twice, third attempt was good-to-go!

Also wanted (needed) to narrow the kimono-like sleeves, but that impacts the increases. So that was another "work around" to tinker with!
