Some progress shots of the coat for my grad piece.
First off the front of my coat, after it was fitted on me so there are pen line changes all over it. It will have a mandarin style collar and a front button panel.
The coat itself is a dark blue, but the collar, front panel and shoulder epaulet's will be black. I'm not sure if I will do cuffs yet or not.
The back, the bottom of the center back will be cut off short and will be done with cartridge pleats. A sample of some I did in my 3rd year are attached to the back for an example. The end result will be longer of course.
