Cashmere Yona Coat
I've been yearning for an oversized "boyfriend" style coat this winter, and the Yona coat fits the bill! This was a major project for me - I pretty much threw away the instructions after I glanced through them to get a general idea of construction, and exclusively followed my tailoring book for every step of construction (how to interface the coat, pad stitch the lapel, tape the roll line, etc etc).
Something I didn't take into consideration was the design of the coat vs. the drape of my version of the coat. Using all of these layers (diaper flannel interlining, heavy coat lining, cashmere wool) made the coat a little thick and fairly structured. The bulk of the coat didn't lend itself well to wearing it closed with a belt, as it's designed - it just looked really awkward and made my midsection look chunky. Had I known this beforehand, I would have redrafted the front overlap to be wider than 1" to better accommodate the button closure I had to end up using (I originally wanted to use coat snaps, but they were too big).
