Simplicity 2526 view B in a wool polyester blend. This took so long because it is the first time I have ever worked with plaids and I wanted to be very careful to match things up properly. The lines actually do match up in the front when the jacket is hanging straight.
By the time I was finished this coat I was a little tired of sewing. Instead of pushing myself, I took a break. I still plan to make a little hat to match =)
