When I first saw this pattern, I thought it was a capelet over the coat. I was pleasantly surprised that the yoke is attached -- it looks like a separate capelet, but it doesn't have the fabric bulk which a capelet would have, and the sewing was much faster and easier. Speaking of easier, I used piping instead of just a bias band where the yoke joins the coat body. Piping makes the edge so much easier to sew. And I love the beret. I would buy the pattern just for the beret!
