After several weeks, few mistakes and a lot of frustration it was finally finished....brocade coat.
This kind of brocade is used for folk costumes in Dalmatia and is quite soft and thin that's because I used a q-lining (warm quilted lining fabric).
Read phoneticallyI must say I just don't like to work with the q-lining but after all I am happy with finished product.
Inspiration for this coat was Victorian bustle coat from Truly Victorian
frog buttons fastening and hidden pockets
