Finished trapunto

I have changed my mind about this coat so many times. I finally decided to use some soft black wool twill from stash and put a celtic knotwork design down the centre in trapunto. Well, I have the trapunto stitched with batting and stuffed with acrylic yarn for some more depth. Now to cut out the coat!
It is a OOP Vogue pattern, #2449.

Fortunately it is a timeless style and will still be wearable in years to come. However it won't match the scarf I knit in the summer.
