Regency Frock Coat

Finally I am ready to share many of the things I was working on this summer.  School has started and my sewing has been pushed on the back burner.

This Frock coat is made from a medium weight black wool.  It will be very warm for its owner, but it sure looks dashing.  The buttons are going to be hand done by its owner, so straight pins are my substitute in this picture.

Something I did not know about Regency Coats: there is actually boning in the collar to hold it upright and give it body.  Using the welt pocket tutorial, I made functioning pockets on this pattern which just had fake flaps.
