Carrie's Not Reversible Coat

I constructed this coat using sueded cuddle cloth.  I deconstructed McCall's pattern 9576 in such a way that I was able to construct the coat by primarily using topstitching on all the pieces - with the exception of the side and shoulder seams - to form the body of the coat.  After topstitching,  I cut the "seam allowances" close to each seam.  This process all but eliminated shedding.   

This pattern was designed to be a reversible coat – but alas, who needs reversible when this warm blanket-like fabric can be worn close to the body for added warmth!
