Chore Coat, Cone Mills Denim, test 1

This is the third chore coat design I've made for the Slowboat project, and I'm pretty happy with the way this one came out.  I tried a few different pattern making techniques that I haven't done before,  and most of them worked.  Some unusual selvedge details too, but I'll probably skip them next time.

Did have a few seaming issues, but should be able to fix that when I get time to work on one of the machines.

Materials:  12oz Cone Mills selvedge denim, 100% wool collar and cuff lining, copper tack buttons (soaked in vinegar for a week).
