I don't know what to do about the coat for now - raglan sleeves are a "no." So instead I am proceeding with a very useful garment for a WY winter; a strapless bombshell cocktail dress. The pattern is from Burda WOF from March of 2010. Interesting fact: I originally traced this pattern to sew up for my rehearsal dinner. Those of you who know me know how that one turned out!
