The intended result...

I guess I should have done this before: post pictures of what the intended result with the pattern I'm adapting looks like.

In the schematic it's this. You see that there are a number of deviations from the Milford look I'm aiming for, that I've taken care of through changes as recorded in my posts of pattern construction, so far. Most notably the wider cut of the lapel, the lack of pleats or arrows in the back, and the pockets.

And here's a little (like, tiny) drawing that, I think, shows the belt-less version, rather.

The end result
Thanks - the front of that coat is much as I remember my grandfather's, but his was considerably more fitted. Darts at the back and the half belt should take care of that! The man in the picture looks like he's wearing a cardboard box :)

Re: The end result
He DOES ;-)

So, if you'll be trying to use my instructions, you've now got the entire page of the original construction as reference, as well... Only in German, obviously. So, if you need any parts translated in addition to my step-by-step posts, just let me know!
