The length of the coat goes to the hips and flares out slightly. The pattern and tutorial offers so many options; with or without hood, ruffles down the front and round the hood and even the option to have a removable hood (it attaches with snaps!).
JubeJube really loves the hood on this jacket!
I had mine close up with 3 buttons and used button loops which was not one of the options offered in the pattern but I wanted the jacket to stay closed up tightly since it was getting cold outside. The pattern suggests one hand sewn snap at the neck line.
I think you'll have to agree that JubeJube is getting pretty good at choosing fabrics that suit her.
