I kept waiting to see a pic of the full finished project and how it hangs. How it is likened to a Bohemian coat? I just don't understand. I get it that you sewed a skirt and shirt together. I don't get the coat part.

I would have liked to see the finished 'coat' modelled though' Seems to me a coat should have sleeves and keep you warm, whereas this is more a a long waistcoat (vest)? Clever and well thought out tho.
