Well, I sat at my trusty Singer sewing machine (I inherited from my grandfather, I still need to name it...hmm...) and began to sew. I used a needle made for leather and heavier fabrics since the coat material is a leather-ish fabric.
Once sewn together I added the green skirt material to the inside of the collar. To the right, Kami Jacobs is saving my ass by sewing in the zipper. It runs full length of the front of the coat and was totally defeating me. She's a professional and the zipper looks great!
I also added green fabric flair at the shoulder and as a waist band.
