Making Mr Ames - Outerwear for a little lad

So many ideas to make the first Cargie Threads coat for little men.  I decided early on this one would have a two colour split with a dominant red and a fully lined retro graphic feel.

I spent a lot of time playing with the size and style of the hood.  I wanted it to be comfortable on as well as hanging at the back.  The join to the neckline needed to be smooth and ensure that the zipper didn't touch the neck.
