I took Pastor N's coat to him yesterday; he put buttons on it last night and it really doesn't look *too* bad. He's pleased, so that's what really counts.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a photo of it actually *on* him, and a picture of a black coat on a hanger isn't really post-worthy. But I have requested photos of the finished coat on him (he will be wearing it this weekend), mostly so I can post about it over on Pattern Review and warn everyone about the pitfalls of the draft.
But, for your amusement, My Sweet Baboo did snap this photo yesterday:
The photographer assured me that you could indeed see the point of the whole thing in that photo...that The Actor is now about 1/2 inch taller than his mother...but I really can't say that I can tell it from that camera angle. I guess we'll just have to take his word for it.
