Pattern to make Ed's coat

A lot of people have been asking me this lately, so I figured I'd just post it here and quell the public outcry. XD

My friend K-chan made Ed's coat for Halloween a while ago, and it turned out really nice. The pattern she used was for a double-sided, reversable trenchcoat; Mc Call's #4222, which can be bought at craft stores such as Michael's or JoAnn's Fabrics, or ordered online. (pardon my Michigander accent ^^;) It includes a hood and everything. Took her 8 hours of straight sewing (no breaks) to make it. o_O;

K-chan didn't sew the buttons on though (didn't have time at the moment and we couldn't find any that looked right). She didn't make the slit up the back either; though this isn't in the pattern, it's a very simple alteration. If anyone's interested, she used black matte cotton(?) on the inside and red pill-proof felt/flannel for the outside. It's a very sturdy, durable, and well-made coat. And it's fuzzy. ^^

I designed pattern for the symbol on the back, cutting it out of the same black material, and she used red thread to stitch it on so you can still see it when the coat is reversed.

Damn, this song creeps me out >>; /ok *steps off soapbox*
