I had this very easy Vogue Pattern 8775 and I just had to try it. Is a really nice looking coat you can get with just 4 simple pattern pieces : 1 for front, 1 for back, 1 for sleeve and 1 for pocket. Loose-fitting, unlined, double-breasted jacket (fitted through bust) has front extending into standing collar and inside snaps. The back piece had hardly any curve ( around 1 cm or less ) so I just eliminated the back seam.
I really like the color combo of this coat and I hope it is comfortable enough so I can wear it. Is just to hot right now to stay in it and test it. The fabric buttons are just for fun; the coat closes with inside hand sewn snaps. And of course I attached them on the wrong side but I don't really care so much about what part should overlap the other so I just let them like that.
And here is the coat on me:
