Wearing it with sweatpants didn't help!
It turns out I don't hate my Tribal Coat as much as I though I did. I think rushing to finish it may have made me overly crabby. Its just okay, though, not great. Plus, I had only seen it worn with sweatpants and sneakers while I was working on it. It's Burda 7497. I took out 4 of the 6 pleats on the back and left off the bow. I think it was looking like a Lucille Ball maternity top on backwards!
The hem pulls up a bit on the left side, but it does have some excellent welt pockets.
I will wear it, but I don't think I'll be making this pattern up again.
