Another epic project - took me about nine months to finish this. It wasn't a particularly difficult pattern, considering it's mostly stocking stitch. I did modify the pattern so that the only seaming I had to do was to sew the sleeves on to the jacket. Actually enjoyed doing the modifications!
Gave it yellow trimmings because I had spare yarn but mainly because I thought a plain white jacket too boring.
The entire thing may actually be just a tad too big because my gauge was completely off since I was using replacement yarn, but love love love the super long sleeves, which I am almost always never able to get with store-bought clothes.
