Looking for Inspiration  
In the spirit of keeping this community alive I'm asking for help getting some inspiration. I have some yarn that was given to me with the idea I would make a coat. I'd love a coat I could actually wear as outer wear, not just another layer inside. To me this means it needs to close well, have a collar or matching scarf, be at least mid-thigh in length, and have long sleeves that fit closely without being ribbed at the cuff.

I have basically an hourglass shape (waist smaller than bust and hips) with my hips slightly larger than my bust.

Any thoughts?

Hmm. Some good jumping points might be Starsky or Josephine.

[nods] It looks like I'm going to be writing my own pattern and these are definitely places to start.
