This statement dress coat uses basic crochet stitches for stunning visual effects and suits an Intermediate level crocheter. The Coat is made in four pieces which are blocked to approximate gauge, then embroidered with Sashiko-inspired surface crochet, then joined together mainly by crochet seaming.

Annotated photos are included amongst the written instructions, and charts are provided for embroidery for each section. Constructions schematics are provided for each piece and a measurement Schematic is provided for the finished garment.
