I took this set of photos on Sunday. Note that these were taken after I took the hips/bottom of the coat in by a few inches (just guessing at how much to take in).

And here's the back:

I took a couple of photos with the hood up, as well.

I'm planning to make the following changes to my paper pattern pieces before cutting my coat fabric and lining:
- Full arm/bicep adjustment for the coat's upper arm.
- Let the hips back out a bit, especially at the back/high hip.
- Add a touch more ease through the bust. I'm still not convinced that this is needed though, based on how the coat looked before I set in the sleeves. I suspect that the pulling here is either caused by how I'm standing or the tightness of the sleeve.
You can see here what this produced in the next two (poorly lit) photos.
Here's the zipper all zipped up. Looks okay, doesn't it?

Next up, another round of pattern alterations, and then I'll cut and construct my lining/interlining.
