Monday Makes Friday Edition. Winter Coat. Done and done and done.

The pattern, something from Ottobre that I didn't follow any of the instructions for and changed almost everything about. So it's all my fault. I could at least have used black thread instead of white. I realized at the end. Seriously. My brain breaks at the sight of zippers. This is a dual zipper, so he can unzip from the bottom in case he needs to... Snow mobile?
